Time for a five star recipe. Ladies and gents, I give you my adapted recipe for Banana Cake Cookies. They were surely better than any banana bread I’ve ever made. They are so soft and delicious, they are almost like muffin tops. Completely delicious.

Banana Cake Cookies
Makes 2 – 3 dozen

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk or semi sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

2. Mix shortening and brown sugar, beating well. Add eggs, banana and vanilla. Combine well.

3. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to creamed mixture; mix just until combined and flour is incorporated. Gently stir in chocolate chips.
