And more cookies!

I found a new recipe online that was a bit more of a traditional cookie recipe, so I gave it a try with a couple of modifications. The cookies ended up being a hit with Ali – they had a mild flavor and lots of nutrition when you figure in the ingredients – so I wanted to share the recipe!


1/2 cup butter (one stick, softened)
1/2 cup fruit puree (I used the Sprout Banana, Cinnamon and Brown Rice in the picture)
2 tablespoons sugar (I used brown sugar)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 egg yolks (or one egg, for babies over one year old)
2/3 cup flour (I used whole wheat flour)
2/3 cup iron-enriched baby cereal (I used the Gerber Oatmeal with banana)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (in the recipe, it was listed as optional, but I did use 1 tablespoon in my cookies)
1 pinch salt
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 375 and spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Cream butter, sugar, and fruit, then gradually add egg and vanilla. Add in dry ingredients, mixing after each ingredient. The dough was creamy but it yields a soft, moist cookie.
Drop dough by tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 9-10 minutes until edges are golden.
Yield: about 2 dozen cookies.


Happy baking!
