Serving Up {Cookies}: Frosted Banana Cookies

Oh my goodness.  I cannot believe that after all this time of blogging these cookies have not been posted.  I have seriously let you down and I offer my sincere apologies!  But the flip side is that once you taste these cookies I know that you will forgive me :)

I love baked banana goods and these little gems taste just like sweet nuggets of banana bread. Which would be good in and of itself, but then we add the frosting!!!  It is a browned sugar frosting and it's deliriously yummy, not to mention it pairs perfectly with the banana flavor.  Who knew?  This may just be your newest favorite frosting!
