How to make it

  • For cookies, cream together butter, shortening and sugar. Add egg, flavorings, bananas and sour cream; beat well. Add dry ingredients; mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, until bottoms are just lightly browned. Cool and frost.
  • For frosting, combine brown sugar, milk and butter in saucepan; bring to a rolling boil. Remove pan from heat; beat in enough powdered sugar to make frosting spreadable; beat in vanilla. As this frosting cools, it will become difficult to spread. If this happens, reheat it in the microwave for a few seconds, or add a bit more milk to thin it. I like to frost the cookies while the frosting - and the cookies - are still just a bit warm, so that it drapes over the cookie and coats it nicely.

    Had to make these again! The folks at the office raved about them. Taking them to an event tomorrow.
    I added a cup of chopped walnuts. I frosted them by dipping the tops in the frosting. I can't resist them!
    I must try your banana cupcakes! Thanks!

    Made these last night--FANTASTIC! Almost didn't want to take them to work to share! The frosting is great. Nice change from cream cheese frosting. If you like bananas, this is for you! Thanks for the simple and delicious recipe!

    My daughter and I made these today (as I needed to use up a couple of bananas that were going bad). They were really great. I took them to church this evening and they were all gone! Thanks!

    Oh also I was trying to upload a picture, and I accidentally uploaded as the main picture...I thought there was a part where people could upload pictures of their attempts...but I guess I was wrong! Sorry, I didn't mean to upload the pictures as if they were part of the original recipe!

    I just finished making these and they were really yummy...For half of the batch, I followed the recipe exactly, and for the other half I added some chocolate chips and added cream cheese to their frosting. I also added some chopped walnuts to both of the frostings. Thanks for the recipe!

    The solid crisco is actually easy to work with now that it is packaged similar to butter (in individual wrapped sticks, with TBSP markings on the side) - I just don't like to keep it very long after I have opened a stick (just my fetish, I'm sure it is fine if kept longer). Anyhow, yes, you could use all butter, but the crisco helps give the cookies a moistness that is hard to beat. I know several people who are afraid of it, but it's just solid veg oil and they now have a Zero Trans Fat stick that I have found to work great. Also, people who are trying to reduce their fat will often sub applesauce for some of the oil in a recipe, so you could try subbing that for the crisco portion - if you do, let me know how it works! Good luck...it is one of my favorite cookies!!

    I have a question, I'm not experienced with crisco, could i use butter, or will this affect the texture? They just sound so damn divine, but I have a fear of crisco.
