I've been throwing out a lot of bananas lately and was feeling bad about it, so I decided I would save the two over-ripe fellows I found sitting on the counter this morning from such a dismal, wasted fate. There's only so much banana bread one can make in a lifetime, so I decided to look up a quick recipe for Banana Cookies.
I followed the recipe pretty closely but made a few changes. I reduced the flour by a quarter of a cup, omitted the nuts and added chocolate chips instead. Also, I lowered the oven temperature to 375, which I actually think was still too hot. I had a couple of burn victims. I'd suggest a bake time of 13 minutes at 375, or maybe 15 minutes at 350.
I was too lazy to bust out my Kitchen Aid today, so I went ahead and used my little hand mixer which worked just fine. I was also too lazy to bust out my real camera. iPhone photos it is. Apologies. It's a lazy kind of day.
When I pulled these out I thought they looked a little too dark/burny, so I decided to use a quick fix for not-so-pretty cookies: drizzled glaze. Works like a charm, I'm telling ya. And all you need is a cup of powdered sugar, a splash of vanilla and a few tablespoons of cold water....
Ah, much better.
