These super easy cashew butter cookies are a gluten-free, peanut-free holiday cookie alternative to traditional peanut butter kiss cookies, and they only require about 15-20 minutes of your time TOTAL from start to finish. I adapted this recipe from my peanut butter kiss cookie recipe, and I prefer the cookies with the cashew butter and dark chocolate now!

Cashew Butter Chocolate Cookie Recipe



Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Combine the first four ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Place tablespoon-sized balls of cookie dough onto your cookie sheet, leaving plenty of room in between. Break the chocolate bar into squares and press one square of chocolate into the center of each ball of cookie dough.

Bake for 15-17 minutes, remove from oven, and wait impatiently for the cookies to be cool enough to eat! The cookies may not appear to be done, and they will be soft to the touch, but they will set up as you let them cool on the cookie sheet. Makes 15-20 cookies.

If you somehow manage to not finish devouring the entire batch of cookies when they are fresh from the oven, be sure to heat your cookies up before eating them. The melty chocolate makes them almost sinful.
