I know, I know, I am a total slacker when it comes to posting but honestly, TeeBall has taken over my life. These games are right in the middle of the day or at 6:30 at night and they throw me off schedule completely. I am a very schedule oriented person, any little change sets me back for days. But I have a few new posts that I will be putting up in the next few days, so stay tuned. Before I get to this great little recipe I want to thank Rachel over at Rachel vs "the kitchen" and Heidi over at tried and true cooking with heidi for this award. They both have fantastic blogs and if you haven't paid them a visit, please do. You won't be disappointed. Thanks, girls, it means alot to me.
Now on to these cookies. I found this recipe over at The Hungry Housewife. I love her blog. It has so many great recipes. Please check her out, if you haven't already. These cookies are a great alternative when you have these:
Instead of the predictable Banana bread, we all have one we like to make, try these. They are like the tops of a muffin, and who doesn't love those. They are so moist and really delicious. Here is the recipe:
Banana Bread Muffin Top Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 bananas, peeled and mashed
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
powdered sugar, if desired
Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchmant.( I love parchmant paper, you know).
In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and banana. Combine flour, baking soda, slat, and cinnamon; Blend thoroughly into butter mixture to make batter. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheets.
Bake 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes. Cool to room temperaature on cooling rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
These really are good and a great use fo those beautiful, darkened bananas, that some people, who don't know better , throw away. Please try these instead, you will find them to be a keeper.
