  24. Can we use almonds instead of cashews?

  25. Whatelse can I use instead of parchment paper..?

  26. Hi Arthi,
    Followed the same procedure, Oven had no 180 so used 170 in conv mode for 10min. Initially the cookies were very soft and tasty, on leaving it to cool it became very hard and unable to eat. Any ideas why

  27. Hi Arthi,
    Thank you so much for this recipe.My friends and family cannot get enough of them. I added orange zest and glace ginger and made them a little flatter. They were crispy on outside and a bit chewy inside. Very yummy and pretty with the cashew pressed on top. I look forward to trying other recipes of yours. I'm glad I found your site. Ta hi.

  28. Hi Aarthi, can we substitute all purpose flour with whole wheat flour ? How would that affect the taste and texture? Thanks Minakshi
