Banana Cookies

Banana Cookies,

My kids love these almost as much as banana bread!!

Sift together:
2 C. Flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. cloves
Set aside

Beat for 30 Sec:
1/2 C. Butter
1 C. sugar
Beat till fluffy
2 eggs
1/2 t. vanilla
Add a little at a time alternating:
1 C. mashed ripe bananas (2 med bananas or equivalent)
Flour mixture
Beat in between additions

Drop on a greased cookie sheet or parchment lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.
Bake for 10 to 12 min.
Cool on a wire rack.

Banana Butter Frosting
(If you want to add this I would omit the cinnamon sugar step)

Stir together
2 C. sifted powdered sugar
1/4 C. mashed banana (1 small)
2 T. softened butter
1/2 t. Vanilla
Mix well and add more sugar if needed to get to the consistency you prefer.
