I’m writing this post as the smell of cinnamon and banana deliciousness slowly takes over my kitchen. I happened to be on Facebook this afternoon when I saw there was a possible orphan in group C of the Secret Recipe Club. Never one to pass on trying a new recipe I volunteered and was linked up with the awesome Toni of Mommy’s Menu. I was instantly pulled in by her incredibly vibrant header which features all sorts of sweet and savory treats. Knowing that going to the grocery store wasn’t an option I set out to find the perfect recipe that would incorporate things I had on hand. In the end my husband found the recipe, looking over my shoulder and saying “those look gooood”. After verifying the ingredients with those on hand I headed to the mixer and got baking! I wound up being a little short on shortening so I subbed some unsalted butter and carried on.
These cookies were OUTSTANDING!!!! The banana wasn’t overpowering but it was clearly there, which was perfect. I also pinned more than a few recipes for the future, when I’m not limited by ingredients or time. Thanks Toni for some awesome cookies and some delicious treats to look forward to.
