Banana Nut Cookies

Michelle London


Another great recipe from Belle Oaks Inn in Gonzales, Texas! I bake these cookies fresh every day and leave one under a cheese dome with a welcome note for our guests on the first night of their stay.

Makes approximately 9 BIG cookies or around 12-15 smaller cookies per batch.

My KitchenAid mixer whips these up in no time, but you can mix by hand as well.
