"I love banana bread so these cookies sounded good. They were nice and soft with great flavor. The frosting was OK but next time I think I will try a cream cheese frosting and add a mashed banana to that. Not sure how that will work but I suppose I will have to add a little more powdered sugar than what the recipe calls for."
