Fall Back with Peanut Butter Banana Cookies

2 years ago, Handsome and I were just getting to know one another, still in the stage where you stay up till 4 am talking. The night the clocks feel back was no different, and he left around 5AM so we could both get some sleep as I had to work that day.

There I was, young and in love, working the day away at the shop. The day passed and I anxiously closed the store and was ready for another night long chatter session with the man. As I was driving home, my phone rang. It was my boss.

“Is everything ok?” he asked in a slightly panicked tone.


“Then why are the lights out and the door locked?”

That’s right folks, in all my cute and adorable smittenness, I closed my shop an hour early as the clock there had never taken its fall back. Luckily, my boss found the whole situation hilarious and really didn’t get upset. My own guilt is another story.

Two years later, my boss still sends me 3 or 4 text messages a day when the time changes just to make sure I don’t forget.


I had to drop my temperature to 350 because the bottoms were burning at 375 before the cookie was done.

This produced a fluffy, almost break like cookie. My bananas peels were really black when I decided to bake this producing a very heavy banana flavor in the cookie. I should have baked with them sooner. Oh well.

    Haha I TOTALLY remember those days – the staying and talking for ages in the car so you don’t have to go just yet. Getting a stiff neck from the hours spent talking on the phone. Oh young love…sigh :) Live with my boy now and it’s early nights in trakkies and don’t think I’ve talked on the phone in years! Awesome story Kita!
