Mock Peanut Butter Cookies

Here I've adapted an old, favorite recipe for peanut butter cookies below. I used cashew butter and Sorghum Flour Blend and the cookies behaved just like the old recipe, and they taste good too.

1/2 cup palm shortening
1/2 cup cashew butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups Sorghum Flour Blend
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Beat palm shortening and cashew butter together until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until well blended. Add the egg and the vanilla, beat well. Sift the dry ingredients together and add, beating until well blended. Shape dough into 1" balls (roll in sugar, if desired). Place 2" apart on a greased cookie sheet. Crisscross cookies with the tines of a fork. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes, until bottoms of cookies are lightly browned. Cool one minute on the baking sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
