¾ cup all-purpose flour, sifted
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup salted cashews, chopped
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
1 ½ Tablespoons half-and-half
1/3 cup cashews, chopped
Preheat oven to 350º.
Sift flour together with baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix eggs with sugar and brown sugar. Blend in cashews and flour mixture. Turn mixture into a 9” square baking pan, pressing into an even layer.
Bake mixture for approximately 20 minutes, or until crust is firm and lightly browned at the edges.
Put melted butter in a small mixing bowl. Stir in light brown sugar, half-and-half, and cashew nuts. Immediately spread over hot baked cookie crust, covering top completely. Place under broiler for about 1 minute, or until topping bubbles and browns lightly.
Cut while still warm, place on rack and cool completely.
