“This recipe is a little different from others on this site. I swear by Mom's cookies. We had these a lot growing up--especially when the bananas were getting too ripe! Mom would make cookies rather than throw away "perfectly good food!" This is a great way to use up your bananas, and it's tasty! Cooking time is refrigeration time plus actual baking time.”
