Thanks Melody! I am sure it will be lovely...how bad can sugar, flour and oil be when combined?

Yours sound really good, Lisa, even with the differences.

Melody--sounds like a plan. You could always bake the breads, then freeze THEM, because stuff like this always freezes well, and tastes yummy when thawed. :uhhuh:

I tend to double up on my tried and tested recipes and bake 2 cakes at once, so I can freeze one, I like to take my grandparents something home baked once a week, but I don't always have the time, so it's great to just be able to grab a frozen cake right from the freezer. Whenever I have bananas gone too soft (I find bananas are good for like 2 or 3 days at best, they are generally either too green or too soft) I make banana loaves, they have to be the thing I make the most of! Luckily my grandma loves banana loaf ;-)

Me, too - on the bananas. I generally make banana bread; however, the last round, I made banana cookies and my grandsons, plus my Daughter were wild for them. In the move, though, I've lost my recipe. I'll have to find it again. I've not been buying bananas because they go bad so quickly. :uhhuh:

I've never heard of apple sauce cookies! Do you know how long they stay good for? I did find one online today, but on reflection I shouldn't be making them right now as I am not sure how they'd freeze and I can't have cookies about at the moment :rotfl:

Just saw your recipe, Melody, and commented there. It's exactly the way I make persimmon (and other fruit) cookies. :joy:

These types of cookies freeze wonderfully, Lisa! Just be sure to thaw them on an uncovered plate until they are soft, because they tend to weep, otherwise. Once they are thawed, store them as usual. They will be moist and chewy, and SO, so yummy!

It was certainly a big hit with my grandsons and Daughter, as well as Son-in-Law. I saw some of your substitution suggestions and love the idea of cream cheese as well as blackberries and thinking of combining those two for cookies for this next weekend. :yeah:
