This recipe comes from Aunt Stacie, and is a good way to use up a couple of rotting bananas you may have sitting on your kitchen counter.
Soft Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup shortening
2 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup mashed bananas (2)
1 cup (12 oz) chocolate chips
Cream sugar and shortening, add eggs and bananas, then mix in all other ingredients, flour and chocolate chips last. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake on ungreased pan.
Bake at 350 degrees, 8-10 minutes
**I find the cookies need a full 10 minutes, even though they look done before then. If I pull them out sooner, after a few minutes of cooling they start to look quite doughy on top.
