I've posted this before, but now I have a (not very appealing) picture - and these are a summer time favorite. Serve fresh off the pan, or refrigerate or freeze for a cooler treat. Yum! If you like banana bread, you will love these. The burnt butter frosting adds a really rich and creamy touch!
1 stick softened butter (1/2 c.)
1/2 C shortening (butter flavor)
1 Cup sugar
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
Cream together butter, shortening and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, bananas, buttermilk and vanilla.
3 cups of flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
CHILL FOR ONE HOUR, use melon ball scooper to place on cookie sheet.
BAKE 350 FOR 10 MINUTES. Cool.
BURNT BUTTER FROSTING
1 stick (1/2 c.) butter (melted on stove until golden brown-watch and stir). Take off heat and add:
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-4 Tbsp hot water (1 Tbsp at a time until desired consistency) add powdered sugar if necessary. REFRIGERATE OR FREEZE
