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!

I'm nuts too...

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!
