tasty tuesday//iced banana cookies

Last Friday, I was in the baking mood and had some bananas that were nice and brown and perfect for baking so I decided to try a new recipe!  A few months back I found this recipe and since I have a serious love affair with bananas  I knew we would be a good match!  The hubby definitely dug them and said it was like a yummy mini banana bread! They are the perfect little moist ball of deliciousness, so if you love banana bread, write this baby down! You will love it!! 

Banana Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
2 large ripe bananas, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


Beat butter and sugars.  Mix in the sour cream, bananas, vanilla, and egg.  Add the remaining ingredients.  

Use a cookie sheet line with parchment paper (I just sprayed the pan instead of using parchment paper).  Using a small scoop, drop dough onto paper.

 Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. 

I decided to add my own little twist to the cookies that the original recipe didn't call for.  I thought these would great with a little icing on them and I was right, they were!  I made the icing using the simple icing recipe of powdered sugar, vanilla, milk, and melted butter.  Just mix them together and it will look like this.

When the cookies have slightly cooled, simply drizzle the icing over them and let the cool.  They add this nice little glaze to it that is just perfect!  

You can barely see the glaze in this picture since this is right after I drizzled them, but as they dry you it adds  little white glaze to it, that's just perfect! I hope you enjoy it, we loved them!
