Scrumptious Banana-Ginger Cookies

I love cookies so when I saw this recipe today I added to my must try bucket list . A little nervous it may be addictive.

Banana-Ginger Cookies
from :


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 medium-size ripe bananas, mashed (about 3/4 cup mashed)
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Lemon Glaze (recipe follows)
Directions1. Heat oven to 375°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In medium-size bowl, stir together flour, salt and baking soda.

3. In large bowl, beat butter, sugar until light and fluffy, 2 minutes. Beat in banana, ginger and vanilla. On low speed, slowly beat in flour mixture.

4. Drop mixture by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets, spacing the mounds about 2 inches apart.

5. Bake in 375°F oven until lightly browned around edges and set, 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand on baking sheets 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire rack; let cool.

6. When completely cooled, frost and decorate with Lemon Glaze.

Lemon Glaze: In medium-size bowl, whisk together 2 cups confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons milk, 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind, 1-1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt until good glazing consistency. Reserve 2 tablespoons. Frost tops of cookies with the remaining glaze, leaving the edges of the cookies unfrosted. Add 2 drops of yellow food coloring to the reserved glaze. Stir in a few drops of milk for a good drizzling consistency. Dip a fork into thinned glaze and drizzle over the frosted cookies.
