Sweet, Dessert, Southern Dessert, Cookies, Cookie SandwichSo I don’t know about y’all but I love baking cookies {or cake or brownies or cupcakes} on the weekend while catching up on my favorite tv shows,┬ácelebrity gossip, and magazines I didn’t get to crack open all week! One there’s nothing better than the smell of fresh baked cookies in the house. Two the weekends are meant for lounging and indulging a bit! Cookies have definitely become my go to dessert as you can see here, here, and here. They’re simple and the easiest form of dessert to bring into work {so I don’t eat every last one myself}. I decided to spice up the traditional cookie though and add a little something extra. Frosting to be exact ­čÖé While I wasn’t sure how these banana cookies would go with frosting I gave it a shot. The combo did not disappoint! These cookies are amazing on their own {even better the day after} but slightly mind blowing when paired with frosting. You absolutely need to give this little twist on the traditional southern dessert a try!
