This week was a rough week for baking. It seemed no matter what I made it either didn’t turn out or I burnt them in the oven. It was not good.
I had an overabundance of bananas in the freezer and was trying to find things to make with them aside from banana bread. I thought I would make a banana custard for a Banana Cream Pie. Well, that was a disaster. I didn’t cook the custard long enough so it didn’t set, so I had to throw it out.
I came across a recipe for Banana Oatmeal Cookies Life Love and Sugar and thought why not try these. As my luck would have it the first 2 pans I baked I burnt! I had garbage full of banana custard and the house smelt like burnt banana cookies. Like I said it was rough.
The other pans of cookies turned out (thankfully) and I was pleasantly surprised by how good they were. Very moist and they have lots of flavors.
I hope you have enjoy these and none of your cookies burn!
