Sweet Beat: Edna's Cashew Cookies

Posted By on Fri, Jul 24, 2009 at 2:17 PM

 A fabulous hybrid of cake and cookie -- plus generous amounts of whole cashews and cashew buttercream to further reel you in -- equals the kind of cookies you find yourself not wanting to share with anyone. Edna's Success of Mountain View uses a recipe that's been in the family for three generations, back when company muse Edna Hickman baked for her Montana eatery. (With its single table, Hickman's Success Cafe was once listed as the Smallest Operating Cafe in the Guinness Book of World Records.) There's slightly less guilt involved in consuming a package of these cashew cookies than, say, the equivalent volume of cake, but that might simply be because you eat cookies one by one. Go ahead -- we won't tell. Find 'em at Andronico's (1200 Irving at Funston).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
