Burnt Butter Frosted Banana Cookies

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
2 eggs
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.

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


  1. Those look so yummy Heidi! If I had buttermilk I'd make them write now.

  2. just wanted to tell you i made these today! (with a few adjustments because i didn't want to go to the store). thanks for the recipe!


Thanks for your comment!

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
