So, of all of the holiday treats that I have made this year for parties, plates, etc. this was hands-down the favorite! Everyone was complimenting me on these cookies; saying they were the first to go, asking how to make them, wondering what was in them, hoping for me to make them again, all of that! My mom has been making these for years. My favorite part is definitely the brown sugar frosting. I love spooning an extra large portion of frosting onto my fresh-out-the-oven cookies :) I'm happy to share the recipe with you all here: Frosted Banana Cookies
