These cookies are quite simple to bake. You just sift the dry ingredients before doing a tad of creaming, grating an apple and mixing the ingredients together before dropping and pressing the dough balls onto the cookie sheets and baking.

Tips and Tricks for Making the Best Cookies With Fruit

Start by remembering to use measuring spoons instead of relying on your silverware. It is vital to the recipe’s success to use level spoons of baking soda or baking powder when baking. For instance, over indulging with the baking soda and baking powder causes the cookies to become too soft due to extra air instead of the softer chewy texture.

You can make small cookies using a rounded teaspoon or larger sizes using a heaping teaspoon.

When you use a fork to press the cookie dough down, you might find that the dough could stick. Don’t panic and rush to get a fresh fork. What I do is keep a cup with some water and use it to dip the fork back in when this happens helps.

Always use large eggs when baking unless the recipe specifies a smaller size. The reason is how it changes the balance of dry to wet ingredients for the end product. A smaller size could become drier and the cookies may be more prone to crumbling.

Using bananas with the tiny spots indicates the best ripe state for baking since is when they have the most sugar content.

I hope that you will give my recipe a try the next time the urge for homemade cookies calls out to you. And let me tell you that once these peanut butter banana cookies begin to bake, your home will fill with some a delectable aroma that you’ll anxiously keep staring at the clock to see when those cookies finish.
