Looking for a dessert made using Pillsbury® sugar cookies? Then check out these cashew-filled cookies topped with brown butter icing. Ready in 40 minutes.

Ingredients

Cookies

1
roll (18 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
3/4
cup coarsely chopped cashews
1/2
cup white chocolate chunks or white vanilla baking chips

Icing

1/3
cup butter (do not use margarine)
1 1/2
cups powdered sugar
1/4
teaspoon vanilla
2
tablespoons milk

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir in cashews and white chocolate chunks. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 2 Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets; place on wire racks.
  • 3 While cookies are baking, in 1-quart saucepan, cook butter over medium heat, stirring constantly, until light golden brown. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining icing ingredients until smooth.
  • 4 On top of warm cookies, immediately spoon about 1 teaspoon icing (if icing becomes too thick, reheat over low heat).
Tips  

In this recipe, butter is necessary to obtain the browned butter flavor. Margarine will not provide the same flavor and will burn quickly.
