I must warn you. The odor of the mixture -- using the banana -- is intoxicating. The hubs was in the kitchen making the dough together with me (we made a bargain that included him with me) and we both had to work hard to not put our faces, or even a straw, right in to it.

I know precisely how much of an accomplishment it was! My goodness. She left them using a traditional gaufrette iron which goes over an open flame. My father and I had them in the stove. They cook very quickly and you have to be precise. Too little time and they sort of disintegrated into the iron. Overly long and they burnt to the iron and we all needed to wash it out.

My dad was minding the batter and removing the cookies, I was operating the iron, the hubs was timing things. It required quite a few attempts to get it right, but they had been so good! I've tried to create them on my own and it never works. I would like to share the recipe, however, the dang irons are so tough to discover. And pricey. At some point, I'd like to just earn a cookie cutter with the same gaufrette flavor.
