I altered this recipe slightly. The original recipe is "cashew triangles." It calls for 1 cup of salted cashews. It also says to press into an ungreased 9x13 pan and to cut in the pan. I found, the last time I made these, that this resulted in a lot of broken cookies. I also didn't love the salted cashew taste.

But for you purists out there, that was how the original recipe was posted. I think mine tastes better. :)
