You know that recipe that your aunt brings to a get together and everyone can’t get enough of them and asks for the recipe? Ya this is that recipe. I don’t know what it is about these cookies that makes them so delicious. Could it be that they are so soft and have the perfect balance of bananas and walnuts baked into them? Or the fact that they have cream cheese frosting on top? I think both! This is another great recipe to use up those over-ripe bananas and these are guaranteed to be a hit!
