    Recipe Introduction

    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 300F
    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.
