Forget Yum-O: These Cookies Are Rum-O!

The other day I posted a recipe for Banana Peanut Butter Cookies and noticed that there was just a bit of rum in that recipe. Rum and bananas pair really well together, so I wondered what other rum/banana creations I could find. I then came across these Banana Rum Coconut Cookies that are a little bit hearty and a lot tasty. To get the recipe,

The mayo is a little strange... maybe it makes them moist, which is fine by me!

Mayonnaise?? That's odd to I hate it. I wonder if I could make them without using it... Plus I'd ditch the raisins. But other than that, they sound different and pretty tasty.

Rum in anything makes me happy.. but looking in the ingredients.. is one tsp really enough to give them flavour?
