Banana Drop Cookies

Category: Cookies & Candies

Ingredients

2 1/4 C sifted flour
1 C sugar
2 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
3/4 t salt
2/3 C shortening
2 eggs
1 C mashed FULLY RIPE bananas
1 t vanilla
1/4 t cinnamon
1 Tbsp sugar

Directions

Sift together first 5 ingredients. Cut in shortening. Add eggs, bananas and vanilla and beat until blended. (I usually toss the eggs in the blender with the bananas after I've mashed them and just give it a final whirl). For Chocolate Chip Cookies, add 6 oz semi sweet chips (this is the *only* way to do it as far as I'm concerned :). Drop by teaspoon about 1 1/2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with a mixture of 1/4 t cinnamon mixed into 1 T sugar. Bake in moderately hot oven (400F) about 12 minutes or until cookies are done. Remove cookies from pan immediately. Makes about 3 dozen (2 1/2 is more like it, I think) medium sized cookies.
