      These were very good! The banana taste really comes through! Easy, quick and the texture is cakey-like!! I'll make these again--the kids loved 'em!

      These were pretty good. I thought the texture was a little weird--spongy--but I LOVED THE FROSTING!!!

      These were excellent cookies--despite the two mistakes I made!<br/><br/>1) I forgot to put in the vanilla (I know, who forgets vanilla?!?).<br/>2) I didn't have shortening, and used butter. I've not done this with an oatmeal cookie before, and discovered they are not tolerant of the change. I managed to keep them looking more like cookies and less like pancakes by using an ungreased cookie sheet and putting the batter in the refrigerator between batches. <br/><br/>I wish I had known this before I got too far in the process: <br/><br/>"If you need to, you can counteract some of the spread and crispness in the butter cookie with the addition of an extra egg. Whole eggs or egg yolks give cookies a cake-like texture. So try your favorite recipe with butter instead of shortening and bake a few of the cookies. If they turn out too crisp or too flat, add an egg and try again."
