Banana and Raisin Cookies

Is there such a thing as a spring cookie? Well if not there should be and I have the perfect cookie for such a title.

Banana and Raisin Cookies

Recipe adapted from “I love Sugar” cookbook


Ingredients:

¼ C raisins (add more ½ a cup is nice)

½ C Orange Juice

1 C Butter, softened

¾ C sugar

1 Egg Yolk, lightly beaten

2 ½ C Flour

Pinch of Salt

3 OZ dried Bananas , finely chopped

Directions:

Soak the raisins in the orange juice for 30 minutes, drain and reserve 2 teaspoons of the juice for the cookie dough. OH I GUESS I BETTER MENTION NOW THAT I’M A BIT OF A LAZY BAKER. I ALMOST ALWAYS COMBINE ALL THE INGREDIENTS AT ONE TIME AND LET MY MIXER DO ALL THE WORK. Sshh, DON’T TELL MARTHA. So combine all the ingredients including the two teaspoons of OJ and mix.


Drop by the spoonful onto lined cookie sheet, then flatten them gently and bake at 375°f for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire racks and try not to eat them all at once.

This recipe is so different and the cookies sound so good. I've been collecting recipes all day. I'll be very busy if I make them all.

I find most recipes work fine when you combine the ingredients all at once, and it's much easier and makes for less dirty dishes!

I love how pale and puffy they look...like blobs of sugar creamed with butter!

This is very unusual and unique cookies. Sounds very scrumptious.

These sound really unique, I've never baked with dried bananas before. Sometimes I'm a lazy baker too :)

Cheryl said...

Selba said...

pssssttt... me too, me too, many times, I've combined all the ingredients at one time, my excuse is because I totally forgot to read the direction, hahaha....

Grace said...

i don't consider that to be a sign of laziness at all--just common sense. :)
great cookies--it's a combination of fruits i've never had before, not even in fruit salad!
