This was my mom’s recipe for Almost Rotten Banana Cookies and it is my brother’s favorite. I often buy too many bananas just so a few will get left and look almost too bad to eat just so I can make these.
The recipe is on a card from her file box and she has been in Heaven since 2003 so I hold this sacred. It is a recipe that I put into a book that I made and reproduced for my brothers and cousins of all of her faves that we would want to continue to make. I can’t bring myself to type it out but here is a picture.
Truth be told, it is my go-to cookbook for the basics. It holds the recipes that are nearest to my heart, even the sloppy Joes. Of course the Poor Man’s Cookies are pretty amazing too. Back to these cookies…the best part of the cookies is the frosting.
Note…these are messy and more like little cakes than cookies. They do not travel well, which is okay because they never last very long.
Happy Banana Cookies,
