never eschew the cashew....

i love 'em,
and i eat 'em,
and i make 'em a LOT.
i had some cashews hanging out-
you KNOW i had to use 'em.
well, i mean, c'mon-
cashews are good.
like, really good.
i roasted them first,
just to activate the proper flavor explosions when the cookie scene got poppin'.....
and a whole big ol' batch of roasted cashew-laced treats isn't ever gonna let me down.
and they didn't disappoint me.
not one tiny little bit.
check the teleport:

i used the BIG sexy chocolate chunks, too.
these jauns are expert.
y'know what i did?
...i did the best i knew how.
and this is what that included:
1 cup of roasted whole cashews, chopped afterwards.
12 oz of dark chocolate chunks
10T butts
3 T creamchee'
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup spelt flour
1 1/2 cups a.p. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp each baking kapowder and soda
4 oz coconut yogurt
1/2 cup ground coconut
2 tsp vanilla
butts, chee' sugar, salt, vanilla, yogurt- in that order.
flours, leavens, nuts and chunks.
it's easy.
i rolled 'em, and squished 'em, and baked 'em at 375 for 13 apiece,
and let the whole mess cool off enough to drizzle that chocolate sauce all over the place.
i made them as a  goodbye to my friends.
they're gone,
and i'm still here,
which is essentially the same story it's always been,
over and over, for as long as i've lived here.
the thing is,
kindness is not a wasted action,
because you get the goods even as you give it away.
it's synergy.
and that's good for you...
it's cold.
it's dark.
it's the end of september.
all of it is really unfurling like blackened pirate's sails,
taking away the bright spots and the treasures,
to be replaced by a week of falafel all too soon.
it's almost THAT time of year again.
i hope you're braced for the fury.
i know my hatches are battened;
never quiet, never soft.....
