Banana Bread Cookies

Banana Bread Cookies
What is it with me and anything banana bread? I made these cookies and ate 15 of the 20 cookies made. The only reason Alex even tried one of these cookies is because he came home before I finished them off. The cookies are on the cakey side, but what else can you expect from a cookie that actually tastes like banana bread? I thought a coconut rum glaze would go perfectly with these cookies so that's what I did (coconut rum glaze: powdered sugar with rum added until it reaches the desired consistency). Delicious!

Hmm - I love a cakey cookie. Add banana to that and it's a total winner.
