Please use over ripe bananas , well mashed in this recipe as that is where you find the great flavor of banana.
This recipe is from Land O'Lakes-
butter box.
My kids just loved these when they were small- and still like them now-- I have so many cookie recipes that every once in awhile I have to go back and see what one I haven't made in awhile.
I think you will enjoy this cookie!
