Banana Cookies, Umpa?
« on: May 19, 2012, 08:21:15 PM »
How can I make these cookies if I don't have any FTS Banana Butter, Umpa? How do I know if it will work? What to do, what to do...

BANANA COOKIES

1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup xylitol or 24 drops ZERO
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup FTS Banana Butter
1 egg
1 cup unsweetened coconut
3/4 cup pecans

1. Preheat oven to 400 F
2. Sift dry ingredients together.
3. Once dry ingredients are sifted, cut in shortening.
4. After shortening is completely cut in, add banana butter, eggs, coconut and nuts and blend together well.
5. Spoon drops onto cookie sheet and bake at 400 F for 8-10 minutes (Note: this is a lot softer than normal cookie dough and will not form balls, hence spoon “drops”).

Frost with cream cheese frosting if you want them frosted.

It does seem high, doesn't it? I'll turn it down to 375. You could try out the recipe and tell me if it's any good, you know. Make a half batch so you don't waste any more ingredients than necessary if it's yucky.

You got that right, Umpa! :D :D :D :D

And I agree, 400 in most ovens is quite high.
350, or 375 tops, seems about right. ;)

This recipe looks good.
I hope it's as good as it sounds.
I'm a recovering banana-holic! :D :D :D
