Horseshoe Cashew Biscuits

Our mum has been making these biscuits every Eid for as long as we can remember and they are the epitome of melt in the mouth: these cashew biscuits are so moreish, you won’t be able to stop at one

Ingredients- Makes Approx.60-75 biscuits

  • 1 cup cornflour
  • 2 cups cashews, pulverised to make a powder (or use 2 cups store bought cashew powder)
  • 1/2 cup castor sugar plus extra to coat biscuits
  • 500g soft margarine; at room temp
  • Plain Flour (enough to bind the dough)


  1. Beat the margarine and sugar until pale and fluffy
  2. Add in the cashew powder and cornflour and mix again
  3. Slowly add in the plain flour: just enough until the mixture binds together and forms a dough


  1. Pre-heat oven to 160c
  2. Lightly grease your baking tray with margarine and split the dough into 16g dough balls
  3. Roll each dough ball into a palm length log and twist to make a horseshoe (U-shape). Lay flat on to your baking tray and repeat with all horseshoes
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes in the oven then remove and whilst hot, dust with sugar. Leave to cool then enjoy!
