    Wonderful Flavor. Before adding the cashews, I separated the batch into 4th. I made 1 plain, 1 with chrush candy canes, 1 with mini M&M's, and of course 1 with the cashews. (My favorite) Sweeter than I remember from my family recipies. I did not use parchment paper. I very lightly sprayed an old cookie sheet and as long as I only let the cookies set for a minute or two after coming out of the oven, they stayed together fine. Leaving them on too long, they do stick and may break due to being fradgile cookies.  -  29 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
