    This was really good! I didn’t roast mine, just because I wanted to eat it “now”, lol. What I did do that made it super easy, was I ground the cashews to a powder in my 20-year-old little Cuisinart coffee grinder. Super smooth.

    Bomb! Ooooey, gooey, amazing! Thank you!! My husband loved it and he usually cringes at my “healthy alternatives.” Thank you so much. This is a game changer for me!

    So…this looks absolutely fabulous (plus super easy), and I’ve been wanting to try cashew cheese for a long time. But…sometimes cashews give me a problem and I’ve been looking at trying soaking first to see if that helps. If I soak, do I need to dry/roast the nuts, or can I just drain and use? Thanks so much!
