Samantha and Another Mmmm Good Recipe

The daughter of the camp director, Samantha, stayed the night with me and we decided to make some cookies. She likes my grandma's Banana Nugget Cookies. I thought you might enjoy sharing the night with us.

Samantha had never used a hand blender before, so she enjoyed getting the bananas nice and smooth.
She did a great job measuring all of the ingredients. We got a really good laugh after she measured the shortening. I have the Pampered Chef measuring cup and she asked if she could make it "poop" the Crisco into the bowl.
She got to use one of my most prized possessions. Yes, I'm in love with my Kitchen Aid mixer.

Let's scoop those babies onto the cookie sheet. I know this cookie sheet looks awful, but it's my favorite. I absolutely hate air bake cookies sheets.
Ready to bake....I can just smell them.
We played Hand & Foot while we waited. We won't mention who won. Okay, I'll be a good sport. She cleaned my clock.

Oh boy...where's the milk?

Here's the milk. Let's try these cookies out.

And the judges say...

These cookies are a winner!!!!! Now, why don't you give them a try.

Banana Nugget Cookies
1 3/4 cup flour
1 3/4 cup oatmeal
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 pkg. chocolate chips (I put in the whole bag)
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup shortening
1 egg
1 cup banana

Mix wet ingredients and sugar. Add dry ingredients. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. I eat these for breakfast with a glass of milk.

Looks like a good time! I would never eat banana cookies, but I would love to have a Kitchen Aid mixer ;-) Housewarming gift, maybe?
