After spending a few days in Las Vegas I feel closer to the King.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups Cake Flour

1 2/3 cups bread flour

2 1/2 sticks butter (room temperature)

1 1/4 cups Brown sugar

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt (extra for sprinkling before baking)

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

20 ounces of milk chocolate chips (use good chocolate)

2 ripe bananas

1/2 cup peanut butter

Flaked salt

DIRECTIONS

In a bowl sift together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.  Set aside. In another bowl, smash bananas and peanut butter together. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs (one at a time) and vanilla. Incorporate flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips, fold in banana and peanut butter mixture.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Scoop out a small ice cream sized amount of dough onto silpat lined cookie sheet  and slightly flatten dough.  Sprinkle a little bit of sea salt on each cookie.  Cook for approximately 12 minutes.
