27. Banana Cake Cookies

These cookies are deserving of their name, because although the are of the shape and proportions of cookies, they are actually very cakey and soft in texture. This cookie is great as is, or you may add your choice of that extra ingredient: nuts, or chocolate chips, or fresh berries, or dried fruit...
I had some dried blueberries on hand therefore added that. Also, to dress-up the cookie, you may decorate it with drizzles of melted chocolate, white chocolate in my opinion goes best.
In short, this recipe falls under my favorite category: it is versatile, and does not limit you by rules, techniques, or laser-cut direction.
Adapted from alrecipes.


1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup banana, mashed
