Sweet Melissa Sundays – Butterscotch Cashew Bars

by Jessica on June 21, 2009

Butterscotch Cashew Bars

I love cashews and completely agree with Melissa when she says that they’re not used nearly enough in baking. So, I was really excited when I found out about this week’s SMS choice. Melissa’s recipe is really simple and takes little time to put together… the toughest part is waiting for the bars to cool! 🙂 I took them to the bff’s housewarming party yesterday and they were a hit. I even gave out the recipe to 3 guests (I love this book!)!

A big thank you to Pamela of Cookies with Boys for such a wonderful pick!!

I just love cashews and I’m glad that they were in this recipe. Your shortbread base looks really great, as does the whole cookie! Thanks for baking along with me this week.

I’m so glad that this was a big hit for you. I loved how easy these were to put together and how versatile they are.

I’m glad they were a hit at the party you went to! I agree – Cashews are an underused resource in baked goods!! Thats why I loved this recipe so much!

I love cashews too – but I skipped this week. I would have loved to try one, though.

These look so freaking good! Every time I see the SMS posts I want to slap myself for having this book and not using it yet! That’s it, I’m busting it out this week!

Cashews are so yummy that they don’t last in this house. Of course, these bars wouldn’t make it very long either. They look great!

Hi Jessica!

Your bars came out lovely and I’m glad they were a hit at the party- don’t you just love when people request the recipe? Quite the compliment. My family really enjoyed these bars too- I hope you have a chance to stop by my site to check mine out as well!

Have a great week and I look forward to talking to you again after next week’s recipe post!
