Recipe: Collision Cookies

Collision Cookies, yummy

I recently participated in a fundraiser called 100 Men Who Cook.  It's the third year I've done it, and each year, I try to slip in a wrestling theme.  This year, I made "Collision" Cookies, in an attempt to cross promote Pro Wrestling Collision here in southern Illinois.

Here's the secret on Collision Cookies.  I "borrowed" the recipe from my WWF Cookbook "Can You Take the Heat?"  It's the Rock's Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe.  But here's the other big secret.  That recipe is actually the recipe for Neman Marcus Cookies.  So in an attempt to not look like a total thief, I added a smashed banana to my cookies.  I told people the flavors collide in your mouth.  I should be in marketing, right?

Anyway, here's the recipe if you'd like to try your own.

Collision Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 mashed over ripe banana
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups quick oatmeal, blended to a fine powder in a food processor
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
4 ounces Hershey Bars, grated
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans or mixture)
1.  Preheat oven to 375°F Cream butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and banana.  Stir in eggs and vanilla. Blend in flour, oatmeal, salt, and baking powder. Add chocolate chips and nuts.

2.  Roll dough into 3/4- to 1-inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until browned to suit.

3.  Place on a cooling rack and immediately add the grated Hershey bar to the top.
