Spring is in the Air

Oh yes it is!!!!  The Tribe is busy burning ditch weed.  Yee haw.  Cough….cough…gag…gag.  Well,  at least the water should move down the irrigation ditches and canals better.  And as promised…without further ado…….


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed bananas, about 4 really really ripe ones
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used half milk and half semi)

Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Mix in the mashed bananas. Add the flour mixture, and stir until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.  Bake at 400 12 to 15 min.

These are very moist cookies and they store in the cookie jar really well.  And a nice change from the normal over ripe banana uses.

I forgot to include this pic yesterday.


The whole time my Honey and I were doing the chicken thrash…..getting early fuzzy butts warm, watered and fed,  the gkids were in the sand box serenading us.  We did have to laugh when we were done.
