banana bread cookies

I've been meaning to make banana bread for some time now since I've got a freezer full of very ripe bananas. I had this fantastic idea to make banana bread in a cookie form. As with most of my great ideas, it's been done before. I found several recipes and decided to try this Martha Stewart recipe which made these wonderful cookies--

I made some alterations. I omitted the egg and used an extra banana (an idea I got from cupcakepunk's blog). I didn't use parchment or rotate the cookie sheet. They turned out perfect! I was feeling very domestic and pretty proud of myself. And then I made the last batch of cookies--

I made my son dinner in between batches of cookies and left the broiler on. The cookies didn't fare so well!

  1. What a bummer!

    The first batch looks great and I'm sure they were delicious.

    I make banana cookies often.
