Choc-banana Cookies
« on: June 10, 2014, 05:02:03 am »
This recipe was in our local rag and originated from bestrecipes.co.au

Choc-banana cookies - makes about 30
Preheat oven to 180oC (160 fan forced)
Line 2 baking trays.

125g softened butter
35 brown brown sugar
1 egg
280g S R flour
1 small mashed ripe banana
80g chocolate chips plus extra for the tops

Mix the butter and sugar for 4 mins/speed 3.

Scrape down sides, add the egg and mix to combine 5 sec/speed 3.

Stir in the flour, banana and choc chips 30 sec/reverse/speed 3.

Drop level tablespoons of the mixture onto the trays 3cm apart.  Push an extra choc chip onto the top.

Bake 22 mins, place the trays in the top part of the oven and swap them halfway through the cooking.

They should be golden and firm to the touch.  Allow to cool on the trays then store them in an airtight container - a tin one is best. They will stay crisp long enough for them to all disappear - mine lasted 9 days.

The banana flavour really hits you on the second day.

My type of cookie Judy. Does the banana make them go soft please?

I made them yesterday Cookie and they're still crisp today.  I'll let you know if they do soften, there's still plenty in my tin even after giving Mum some so they will last me ages and be put to the test.  The banana flavour intensified overnight, I could hardly taste it yesterday but it hit me today. My banana wasn't over-ripe, I wouldn't use a mushy one.

I think you'll find them totally different Marina.  I love banana muffins but was surprised at how nice these cookies were.

9 days on and these are still crisp Cookie.  I only have 1 a day so they are lasting far longer than households with more mouths to feed.

Golly, now I need to decide between this and CC's recipe. Perhaps both would be a good solution.
