Mrs. Fields Banana Nut Cookies
Source of Recipe
This is an original recipe from Debbie Fields, which I found and posted in a Recipezaar forum in response to a request. It prompted such positive replies that I thought I should post the recipe for others who might be searching for it, too.
2 2/3 cups flour, all-purpose
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar, light packed
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1 teaspoon liqueur or extract, banana flavor
3/4 cup ripe banana, mashed
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 Preheat oven to 300°F
2 In a medium bowl, combine four, soda and salt. Mix well and set aside.
3 In a large bowl with an electric mixer, blend sugars at medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add egg, liqueur and banana, and beat at medium speed until smooth. Add flour mixture, 1 cup of the chocolate chips and walnuts, and blend at low speed until just combined.
4 Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart.
5 Sprinkle cookies with chocolate chips, 6 to 8 per cookie.
6 Bake 25-27 minutes until cookie edges begin to brown.
7 Transfer immediately to a cool surface.
