Here’s more about this unique recipe booklet.
15 Love Inspired Historical authors shared old family recipes and the story behind each in a digital booklet, titled OLD FAMILY RECIPES.
Here’s one by author Valerie Hansen:
Grandma Ruth Wilkinson, nee Seybold, my husband’s grandmother, was even more of a pistol than we thought. Protest march pictures of her in the early 1900s were a real surprise! Here’s her recipe. She used to make these cookie bars for us and pack a box full of them whenever we were planning a vacation. We never went hungry!
1 1/4 C. sugar
2/3 C. shortening
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs, unbeaten
1 C. ripe, mashed banana (about 3)
2 tsp. baking powder (heaped)
2 1/4 C. sifted flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda (heaped)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. chopped nuts
Batter will not be stiff. Pour into jelly roll pan or cookie sheet with raised sides and smooth it out so it’s even. Top with 1/4 C. sugar and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Bake at 350 for 15-20 min. It will rise a little like a thin cake. Cool and cut into squares. These can also be made as drop cookies but grandma found an easier way and just baked a whole sheet of them.
I don’t know about you but I’ve NEVER heard of a Banana Cookie! I’m going to make this one myself.
