Does anyone have a recipe that includes Cashew Butter?

I really enjoy Cashew Butter and so want to find some fun and adventurous ways to use it in food.

    No one will have to dig to the bottom of the bowl to find the cashews in this toffee-like candy.

    Cashew Butter Crunch

    1 cup granulated sugar

    1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter

    1 tablespoon light corn syrup

    1 1/2 cups salted cashew pieces*

    Combine sugar, butter and corn syrup in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted and mixture comes to a boil (8 to 10 minutes). Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until candy thermometer reaches 290°F or small amount of mixture dropped into ice water forms brittle strands (25 to 30 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in cashews.

    I like to use it as a thickener to my Indian dishes like Chicken Muklari, also known as Butter Chicken in Chicken Tikka Masala and it is nice used in Middle Eastern cuisine in place of Tahini the sesame paste, in dishes like Hummus and Baba Ganoush, the eggplant spread.

    It can also be use in Chinese cuisine for a flavour based for spicy Szchewn food like Hot Pepper Chicken and in baking, try making Peanut Butter Cookies with it, they will be a bit flaky, try adding a tablespoon of flour to your favorite recipe.
