Banana Walnut Cookie
I wanted to do some baking at my mum's place but as she dun have baking equipments at home so I decided I should try to bake cookies that do not require mixer, just a mixing bowl and spoon can do the job.
As I had one banana left that I wanna use it up, so I decided to try this recipe from Peng's Kitchen.
Probably I had scoped too big tablespoon of batter, the cookies seem too big to be baked within the baking time. I had to double the baking time then I was able to get the cooked cookies.
I am not sure did I bake this recipe successfully cos my cookies dun look as good as Peng's Kitchen, her cookies were more appeitising.
225gm plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
125gm butter, cubed & chill
120gm light brown sugar
100gm walnuts, chopped
1 large banana
1. Sift flour and baking powder into mixing bowl. Add chilled butter and blend with fingertips until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
2. Stir in sugar and walnuts.
3. Mash banana and beat in egg. Stir in milk. Fold into butter mixture and mix till combined.
4. Drop 1 tbsp of the dough onto baking sheets and bake in preheated oven at 180 deg cel for 15mins or until golden brown. Cool completely on wire rack before storing.
The cookies were crispy at the edge and soft at the center, I am not sure is it the right texture of this recipe. The cookies tasted quite nice (if expectation is not high) but there was only a hint of banana taste, probably is the type of banana used.
