Butterscotch fan?! Buttery and golden these cookies are a blast of flavor and not too sweet. Spiced with our most popular yellow curry, Madras South Indian Curry is full of classic baking spices like cardamom, ginger and cinnamon. They get their golden yellow color from turmeric. One of the best parts of this nostalgic cookie is the chew from oatmeal and crunch from cashews. This batch is a perfect example of how spices can be used in everyday cooking. You’ll fall back on these for any cookie exchange or as a holiday treat.
What is butterscotch anyway? It’s caramelized brown sugar with the addition of butter or cream. Thankfully finding the chips in most grocery stores is easy. Since the flavor is sugar based, balancing it out with spice is its perfect companion. Other spices that are great in this recipe are Advieh, a Persian blend with a warm foundation from roses, cinnamon and cardamom. The result is a little less bold then the Madras Curry above but has all the flavors expected in an oatmeal cookie. If you’re making these around the holidays our Gingerbread Spice is a no brainer. These cookies will mix up the routine from the traditional wafer. The oatmeal and creamy cashews keep these cookies moist, perfect for gift giving.
