Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter softened
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon mild curry paste
  • 2 eggs separated
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup finely chopped unsalted cashew
  • 1/3 cup mango chutney

Method

In bowl, beat together butter, sugar and curry paste until fluffy; beat in egg yolks, 1 at a time. In small bowl, whisk flour with salt; stir into butter mixture until combined.

In shallow bowl, whisk egg whites until frothy. Place cashews in separate bowl. Roll dough by scant 1 tbsp (15 mL) into balls; roll each in egg whites, then in cashews to coat.

Arrange, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Without cracking dough, gently press finger into centre of each to make well.

Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven until browned on bottoms, 20 minutes. Let cool on pans on racks for 5 minutes, reforming wells if necessary. Transfer to racks; let cool.

Fill each well with about 1/2 tsp (2 mL) chutney.
