- 2 1/4 sticks margarine
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 4 egg yolks
- 1 egg white
- 5 tablespoons powdered milk
- 3 tablespoons corn starch
- 4 to 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour*
- 1 cup ground cashews
*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.
- Mix margarine, butter and eggs until well blended by using a mixer (low speed) for about 30 seconds only.
- With wooden spoon, stir in powdered milk/creamer, cashews and corn starch.
- Stir in flour slowly until the dough is hard enough to shape.
- Shape into small crescents and place on an ungreased cooking sheet.
- Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes at 350°F.
- Let it cool for 30 minutes. Gently sprinkle with powdered sugar until evenly coated. Store in airtight containers.
