Banana Nut Cookies
We came home to find a huge container of our Son In Law's delicious spaghetti sauce! We absolutely love it and consider it a treat when it is given to us. I cooked fettuccine for the pasta and a sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan topped it off. A salad of romaine, tomatoes, cucumbers and a little parmesan. Toasted slices of a baguette, I topped some with garlic butter while Reid made pizzas out of the others.
For dessert we had cookies. I used sugar cookie dough and added fillings. The Boys Loved Them! We added peanut butter, chocolate chips, junior mints, peanut butter and chocolate chips, a candy bar and my favorite...banana nut!
Super easy to make. All you need is...
Sugar Cookie Dough and Whatever filling you want. A dab of this, a sprinkle of that.
For all cookies.......
Flatten a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough. Add your desired filling. Fold over. Add a little more dough if needed to completely seal. Roll into a ball. Place onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Cook in a preheated 350 degree oven. Cook 5 minutes, turn pan around. Cook an additional 3-6 minutes, checking after 3 minutes. Cookies are done when edges start to turn golden brown. Keep on 1-2 minutes on cookie sheet before you transfer them to a cooling rack. I know you can't wait for them to cool...go ahead and eat them warm, I won't tell. ~smile~
As always..My oven cooks different than yours, please adjust time accordingly.
For the banana nut cookies, I sliced bananas. Sprinkled with lemon juice , optional, and brown sugar. Chopped a few walnuts.
For the candy bar...Cut to fit inside the cookie.
All others...just fill, fold and roll.
To a tablespoon of sugar cookie dough, flatten out and add filling.
Fold over, add a little more dough if needed, and roll in a ball.
The sun is trying to peak through.
