As you may or may not know my little sister is getting married (actually it's tomorrow), and I offered to make cookies for the reception. In all honesty I'm regretting doing that, I know that doesn't sound very sisterly but I always overreach with my capabilities and this has been very painful for me. Standing in the kitchen to make one batch of cookies wouldn't be so bad, but I've had to triple each batch and shape them into their initials four different times. I've probably spent upwards of twelve hours in the kitchen and my body has screamed loud each and every time, but before anyone questions I did break it up over five days, unfortunately that didn't seem to help much at all :(
I figured I would start with my favorite persons cookie, that being my little cutie of a nephew :)
1) Preheat oven to 350F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray, I like to use coconut oil personally :) In a large bowl, cream together sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
2) Add eggs and beat thoroughly. Beat in mashed bananas and vanilla until well combined.
3) Gradually blend in flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined.
4) Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto the baking sheet (I made mine into letters), baking for 12-15 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
Well there you have it lovely readers, cookie number one complete and not a moment too soon because my shoulder and low back are starting to bug me :/ I probably won't be posting tomorrow obviously because of the wedding, hopefully I'll be back Sunday with another cookie recipe and maybe even a few wedding pictures. Until next time...................
