Eggless Banana Butter Biscuits | Bakery Style Cashew Shaped Banana Cookie | with step by step photos and video. Huge glass jars full of cute yellow biscuits never fail to draw our eyes at the bakeries. Banana biscuits are delicious and are perfect for those who prefer munching on something sweet with evening tea.
These eye catching cashew shaped yellow biscuits are a perfect snack box treat for all. I remember these yellow color banana biscuits kept in glass jars of bakery, during my childhood days. I am so happy to recreate these cookies and serve them on my table. They are perfectly sweet and have hints of banana smell and taste.
The biggest problem I hear is: My cookies spread too much! Why?
A common problem when making cookies is that they flatten out way too much! It is because of the butter we use. This recipe calls for softened butter, not melted butter. The best way to get softened butter is to plan ahead. A couple of hours before you make these cookies set 1/2 cup of butter on the counter. As it sits there is will soften.
But if you are in a hurry, you can microwave butter to soften it instead. Microwave in 5-second intervals rotating your cube of butter each time. Please use caution when softening this way. It can easily go from solid to melted in seconds! And in turn, your cookies will spread way too much.
Things that cannot be excluded in this recipe:
- Banana Essence: Store bought banana essence gives that perfect smell & taste for this recipe.
- Powdered Sugar
