Banana Cookies with Salted Caramel Frosting

These Banana Cookies with Salted Caramel Frosting are kind of perfect. Nope, there’s no melty chocolate, no chocolate chips, no sprinkles to make them pretty. They are all beige and unassuming…rather boring looking, if you will. But oh. Don’t let their rather average looks fool you.

These soft banana cookies are topped with creamy salted caramel frosting that gets a little crunchy on the outside but stays soft and brown-sugary on the inside. Basically frosting perfection.

These cookies are perfect with coffee, as a lunchtime snack..or certainly for dessert. A cookie for all occasions.

And they’re really simple.

  1. Bananas for banana desserts! I used to hate them for some reason, and now I can’t get enough. That frosting tho. (it’s obligatory to spell it “tho” when used in this context)

  2. Caramel makes my world go round! (not to mention my butt….bleh), I’m going to include these on my dessert appetizer platter next week at the annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party I’m hosting. Guests will swoon I’m sure and I will send to your blog. And I’m giving away the same $200 artisan wood platter on my blog right now!!!
