Eggless Banana Refrigerator Cookies

"You would never guess these delicious chewy cookies do not contain eggs and many people wish to or must curtail their consumption of eggs. These refrigerator cookies are easy to slice and bake when convenient, and they also freeze very well. Freshly baked, slightly warm cookies are a special treat and make a wonderful lunch or supper dessert. Nothing travels better in a lunch bag or box than the popular chewy type. I found this recipe on My Great Recipes cards. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping."

Ready In:
10 dozen cookies




  • Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla. Add bananas and beat until well mixed.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add a little of the banana mixture at a time, beating well after each addition. Dough will be sticky.
  • Divide dough into 4 parts. Put 1 part on each of 4 sheets of waxed paper. Dampen hands and shape dough into long rolls, 1-inch in diameter.
  • Wrap rolls. Refrigerate or freeze until firm enough to slice easily.
  • Using a serrated knife, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices. Place 2-inches apart on oiled cookie sheets.
  • Bake at 375 about 10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Lift edge of a cookie to be sure they are not getting too brown.
  • Remove cookies to wire racks to cool. Store airtight.
  • Tips: Oiled cookie sheets are required for these cookies. Brown speckled bananas are ideal for this recipe for they mash nicely and have excellent flavor. Properly wrapped rolls of ready-to-slice dough can remain in the refrigerator up to 10 days.

<p>Square Meals Make Round People - Author Unknown <br /><br />Do It With Love---It Will Taste Better - Author Unknown <br /><br />I joined zaar in 2002 but I really didn't use it much on until 2006 after my computer crashed and I lost all my unsaved recipes. Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her. I really enjoy searching for new recipes especially here on Zaar. I'm always finding and adding to my cookbook new and exciting recipes. I also enjoy posting recipes here on Zaar as well. I really love collecting different cookbooks. I have over a 100 and growing! I collect mostly Taste Of Home &amp; community cookbooks. The minute I get a cookbook home I sit down and I read my cookbooks from front to back like novels. I work for the Elmira City School&nbsp;District and YWCA. I'm raising my&nbsp;8 yrs old newphew. I'm a part time college student studing Early Childhood Education, but taking time off and hoping to return soon. I live in Elmira, New York where famous writer Mark Twain did some of his writing and he once lived. I have&nbsp;1 cats Samantha and&nbsp;1 dog our newest member MOO MOO (my nieces dog) who are my children as I do not have any human children of my own. I lost&nbsp;four of my very dear children (kitty's) Callie June 2007, Miss Kitty in March 2010, my dog Angel in December 2010, and my other cat Chase in September&nbsp;2011. I'm recently&nbsp;married on August 12th 2010. I love spending time with my niece&nbsp;9 yrs old and my newphews&nbsp;7 &amp;&nbsp;8 yrs old. I enjoy couponing and trading coupons. I love the internet as there's so much to look at online even though you know where I spend most of my time! I enjoy going to yard sales and estate sales every spring - fall. I love gardening and have many different pretty flowers.</p> 8724441"
