3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

2 medium (1 cup) ripe bananas, mashed

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt


1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Half & Half

1 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Grated orange zest, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 3/4 cup butter and 3/4 cup brown sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, 2-3 minutes or until creamy. Add bananas, egg, 2 teaspoons orange zest and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Melt 1/4 cup butter in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup brown sugar and half & half. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Add powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; beat until well mixed. Let cool.

  5. STEP 5

    Frost cooled cookies just before serving. Garnish with orange zest, if desired. Let stand until frosting is set.

Tip #1

Bananas can be “ripened” by placing in a 300°F oven 30-40 minutes or until deeply blackened and soft to the touch.

Tip #2

If using darker colored baking pans, these cookies may take slightly less time to bake. Start checking after 6 minutes of bake time.
