Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are one of my favorite cookies. They're not the prettiest cookies, but they taste so good. They are a cake-like cookie. This is a great way to use up over-ripe bananas without having to make bread.
Add to blender, and blend until smooth:
2/3 C Ripe Banana (2-3 small bananas)
1 tsp. vanilla
Add Evaporated milk (most of the time I just use regular milk) until to you have a total of one cup banana mixture (about ¼ C evaporated milk)
2 ¼ C Flour
2 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
Cream together 2/3 C soft shortening, 2/3 C sugar, and 2 eggs. Gradually add, alternating, the banana mixture and the flour mixture. Mix until well blended. Fold in 1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips, and ½ c nuts (optional). Spoon onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
