My sweet cousin-in-law, Laura, happens to be an amazing baker! She can bake just about anything, and as I said, it’s always UH-MAZING! While we were in Galveston recently for a family reunion, some of our bananas became too ripe to eat, so she whipped up banana bread cookies! Check it out.

Banana Bread Cookies:

  • 1 c. butter
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and banana.
  4. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; blend into butter mixture.
  5. Place them in balls on a cookie sheet.
  6. Bake 10-15 minutes.
  7. Let cool and top with frosting, below.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 4 oz. butter
  • 2-3 t. milk
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla
  1. Beat all ingredients together until smooth. Easy!

If you’ve stuck with me long enough, you may have noticed a banana theme… I really love bananas! ;) What I love about these cookies is that they aren’t super rich. They are sweet and tasty without being overwhelmingly sweet.

Thanks, Laura, for the inspiration and recipe!
