butter flavored shortening
banana, peeled and mashed
These cookies were terrific with some major tweaking so I can only give them a 4, but after adjustment they are a 6! I followed the suggestion of adding an extra banana and using the banana butter icing from this site, but the dough was way too thin for cookies so I added 1 c. of quick oats as well. I also used half white sugar and half brown sugar just because I like cookies with brown sugar. The end result was phenomenal. I actually only iced half of them because my family liked them plain as well. They taste like muffin tops!
This recipe turned out ok.
These are AWESOME! I didn't have butter flavored shortening, so I subbed 1/2 cup butter & 1/2 cup shortening, & next time I will add another banana. I'm tellin ya, this beats the morning time mess (AKA: crumbs from cutting banana bread that I clean up), now the kids just take them & run! I also didn't have powdered sugar, so I used "Satiny Chocolate Glaze" (found on this web site) on the top, delish! They really didn't need the glaze they are good plain. Thanks Molly!
YUM-MEE! Like other reviewers I added 1/4 C extra flour, 1/2t. baking powder, and a bunch of chocolate chips. Dee-lish. So fluffy and cakelike. The recipe makes about 36 cookies, but if you eat them quickly enough before your husband gets home, you can say it just makes 24!
This is a wonderful recipe. Not too sweet, moist, fluffy and tasty. I halved this recipe, along with using margarine, and half whole wheat flour. I also added more banana. So good!! Oh- Also added pecans and walnuts!! But make alot, they disappear quickly. Another thing- No need for icing, just dust with powdered sugar, it will be all the sweetness you need. ****Edit:The only bad thing about these, is the tops get moist and soggy. Dont stack them on top of each other, they get very sticky.
I tweaked it a little because it was a weak version of banana bread....lacked flavor.And walla! Delish! I followed the recipe exactly...just added 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar, 1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts and 1 more banana. I think 3 bananas would be even better! Tasted just like good ole' southern "like grandma use to make" banana bread!
These cookies are wonderful! Just alittle note: after you make up the batter, chill it for an hour or so. They come out like little cakes. I didn't use the frosting on them.
These "cookies" were delicious. I had to tweak the recipe a little but they turned out great. I used 2 bananas, brown sugar instead of white, butter instead of shortening, added 1/2 cup more flour and cinn. and nutmeg. They didn't need the frosting. I dusted with powdered sugar. They are so fluffy and light. They are more like a muffin top than a cookie.
