Bananas are one of those foods that have grown on me over time. I used to hate bananas. Now, I like them just slightly under-ripe, although I still don’t like banana bread. The smell of the ripe bananas, even cooked into banana bread, just turns me off. (I know, I’m weird!). Anyway, I needed to use up a couple bananas that were a bit too ripe for my taste and was looking for an alternative to banana bread. These cookies were great. Just a hint of banana, and are super-soft.
In the future, I’d like to make these again with a little less shortening and with some nuts. These would also be great with a whole wheat flour, to healthify them even more.
PS – I know I’ve got to work on my cookie photos! If you have any suggestions for me, I’d love to hear them!
