Sister Traveller's Banana Cookies

{Side note: I'm going to rename this "Rachel's Recipe Corner" because lately, I've been the only one contributing. I know I am not the only one cooking and I know I'm not even the best cook in the family, so get on it! Please. Side note ended.}

I found this on the blog of a girl I went to high school with. Apparently Sister Traveller made these for all the teenage gatherings at her house, which apparently kept all of Jodi's friends on the right path. I don't know if all that's true but I do know they were good. I had a little taste of one (didn't eat a whole cookie because of the no-sweets thing) and I thought it was good. Matt liked them. Hailey LOVED them (especially the frosting) and all the kids/parents at Music and Movement liked them. So, try them out.

Ingredients:
2.5 cups flour
1.5 tsp. bk.pwd.
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp. bk.soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
Mix and set aside

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup mashed banana (aprox. 2.5 bananas)
1 pkg. choc. chips

Mix butter and sugar 'til fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Alternate dry ingredients and mashed banana. Stir in choc. chips. 350, 10 mins. (I had to bake mine longer.)

Frosting:
2 tb. butter
1/4 cup mashed banana (aprox. 1/2 banana)
2 cups pwd. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Whip until smooth. Frost cooled cookies.
