Chocolate, Cherry , Banana chip Cookies
This is a Duncan Hines recipe.
I had to delete the walnuts because my grandchidren are allergic to them but when I make a secret batch for me the walnuts are going in.
Most of Duncan Hines mixes are dairy free so I use them all the time plus they are a no fail simple mix.
One box of Duncan Hines brownie mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp. cherry juice
1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries plus another 1/2 cup of whole cherries for garnish
1 cup dried banana pieces cut into smaller pieces
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Spray two cookie sheets with non stick spray cooking spray.
Combine the brownie mix, egg, cherry juice and oil together.
Add the cherries, banana chips and walnuts.
The dough may seem dry but keep on mixing it and it moistens up.
Take one big heaping tablespoon of filling and roll into a ball. Flatten out a little and place a whole cherry in the middle.
Place them two inches apart on the cookie sheet.
Bake for about 12 minutes
Cool on a rack
You can add chocolate chips if you want.
This is such a little and big kid recipe.
I used to steal my Moms maraschino cherries all the time when I was little.
I still like Shirly Temples with extra cherries.
