I saw this recipe on Stephanie's blog and thought it sounded fabulous. I didn't want to lose it or forget about it, so I posted it here!
3/4 c. shortening
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. banana flavoring (or extract...hard to find...Chicagoan's I found this at Strack and Van Til by Target!)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 ripe bananas, mashed
Mix shortening, brown sugar, egg, banana flavoring, and vanilla. Mix in a different bowl flour, salt and soda. Add flour mixture. Rotate bananas into batter, then mix well. Drop onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 8-11 min. (You can also add milk chocolate chips to batter (about half a bag)...which I recommend!)
(This is what really makes the cookie good!)
6 T. Brown Sugar
4 T. Milk
4 T. Butter
Bring all brown sugar, milk and butter to a boil. Take off heat, and add powdered sugar until frosting consistency (about 1 1/2 - 2 cups).
