Questions & Replies

  1. Can I use this batter to make cupcakes?


  1. Taste like muffin tops!!! :)
  2. I liked these, but didn't love them. I took these to a function this morning as one of four cookies, and these were eaten the least. I may try again and add more spices, as other reviewers have suggested. I also would have to agree with others that they are probably great for kids as they are. I had trouble keeping the bottoms from browning; wish I'd noted the reviewer who suggested lowering the temperature!
  3. They were ok, but not the best flavor and were almost too soft to be considered cookies. The chilling did help though
  4. These were fabulous cookies. Just like little cakes, so moist and the cinnamon is a nice touch. I only put 3/4 cup of sugar and they were still very sweet, just my preference though. Thanks so much!!!
  5. Very good cookies, moist and cakey. I accidentaly mixed the cinnamon in at the same time as all the other dry ingred. (not paying attention again, trying to do too many things at once!) So I added an additonal 1/2 tsp of nutmeg also. I skipped sprinkling the cinn/sugar mix, and just baked them for 9 minutes. They came out fabulous!! What a great way to use up those over done bananas. I am also thinking that next time I make these I'm going to add some wheat germ, to sneak in a little extra protein and fiber! Thanks for the great recipe!!!
