This recipe tastes and make the house smell just like Banana Bread…but in cookie form! The cookies are moist and cake-like with the perfect amount of sweetness drizzled over the top. The best way to store them, especially during the summer is to layer them separately to prevent them from sticking together. Sweet Stackers convert your containers to multi-level using stackable trays and risers. They insert perfectly into major brand air-tight food storage containers to make the perfect cookie container. This whole batch of cookies were layered neatly in one 3″ deep container.
This recipe came from a blog called Pots Pans & Parkers. The banana cookies turned out delicious and of course everyone in the house wanted one immediately when they came out of the oven based on the aroma. I had to shoo them out of the kitchen in order to make the frosting!
- 3/4 cup butter
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 mashed bananas (3 if they are small)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups of flour
Preheat oven to 350°.
Cream the butter and sugar together. Add egg, vanilla and bananas. Sift flour, baking soda and salt together. Gradually add the flour mixture.
Place a scoop of cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 9 minutes or until the bottom are golden brown.
Banana Cookie Frosting:
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup butter (one stick)
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups powdered sugar
Scald the milk in a pot. Add the butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Bring to a boil on a medium heat. Gradually add the powdered sugar into the pot, constantly stirring to avoid sugary clumps. (note: you can add more or less powdered sugar depending how thick or thin you want the frosting)
The Sweet Stackers risers are versatile! The risers are used to stack full-sized cooling racks to let the cookies cool and the frosting dry – saving space on the kitchen counters.
The cookies in this container didn’t last long!
