Banana and Raisin Cookies
Recipe adapted from “I love Sugar” cookbook
¼ C raisins (add more ½ a cup is nice)
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
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.
