Banana Snickerdoodles

Banana Snickerdoodles

What to do with overripe bananas?  That’s the age-old question, isn’t it?  And it seems like I ask it every time I buy a few, since bananas go from green to overripe in about 2 days here in our Texas summer.  I can’t stand to eat them after they get the first freckles, and I’m not a big fan of banana bread.

So, where does that leave me? Looking for new recipes, and I think I found a good one!  Lisa is Cooking recently posted on Noble Pig’s Banana Snickerdoodle recipe that was adapted from Going Berserk.  Get all that?  No worries; all you need to know is that these cookies are fabulous!  Just follow the links to the recipes.

I only changed one little thing.  The recipe called for baking the doodles at 400 degrees for 9 minutes.  I did that for the first batch but they were a touch too toasty for me.  I  lowered the temp down to 375 and the cooking time to 8 minutes for the rest of the batches, and they were perfect.  This recipe made a whopping delicious 4 dozen Banana Snickerdoodles.

    Those look awesome! I can’t stand bananas either once they start to freckle, but I do like banana bread, just don’t make it too often.

    These were really easy too, LilSis. Maybe you could get HayHay to help roll the balls!

    great, now i want my own stack o’ snickerdoodles. right now. i’ve seen these popping up everywhere, and i have to say that i’m afraid the banana would overwhelm my beloved cinnamon. i’d give em a taste though. a taste, or perhaps 25. :)

    Hey, Grace. I know what you mean about the cinnamon (btw, do you use Penzeys awesome cinnamon?), but the banana flavor isn’t strong at all. It adds a little something that’s hard to identify. I think you’d like these!

    Thanks for the mention! This is one incredible cookie. The banana and cinnamon made great friends in these.
