"These were posted on by *Parsley*, and while they don't make my trays every year they are a favourite. I did have to tweak some things to get them to work out properly, and rewrote some of the instructions so they make more sense to me."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F.

Step 2

In a large bowl, beat butter, sugars, vanilla and egg with a hand mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy.

Step 3

Gradually stir in flour, baking soda and salt by hand.

Step 4

Add coconut and cashews, either stirring or kneading with your hands depending on how stiff the batter is. If batter is too stiff to work with, add up to 1/4 cup milk, 1 tablespoon at a time.

Step 5

Drop by tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Step 6

Bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes (until edges are golden brown); let cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes, then move to wire racks to cool completely.

Step 7

*Watch them carefully! There is a fine line between lightly browned edges and completely burned bottoms.
