BANANA OATMEAL CHEWIES

This is an old recipe my mother had for years.  I think she got it from one of her little non defunct magazines she so looked forward to getting in the mail.

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup mashed bananas
1 3/4 cups rolled oats
1 cup candied citrus fruits
1/2 cup nuts

Cream butter and sugar.  Add egg and mix well.  Mix flour, salt, cinnamon and soda.  Add alternately with mashed bananas.  Add rolled oats, nuts, and fruits.  Drop by spoonfuls on lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake 12 minutes at 350 degrees.  Makes 4 dozen cookies.
