Banana Cut Out Cookies with Banana Icing

I always loved banana popsicle as a kid. These banana cookies remind me of them!

Really they do.

I just love that yummy banana flavor.

A few years ago I found an entire bag of  banana popsicles. It had to be a bag of about 50 banana popsicles. I couldn’t get them into my cart fast enough. The rest of my shopping trip, all I could think about what those popsicles. I couldn’t wait to get home to have one.

I didn’t!

I grabbed one right out of the bag and opened it up and stood there trying to load the rest of the groceries into the trunk one handed. All the time hoping the banana popsicle wouldn’t drip down my arm, I wouldn’t want to have to lick my arm all the way to my elbow in the parking lot. Come on…you wouldn’t either!

I did however enjoy that banana popsicle and the many that followed.

I sure how I find them again this year!

So to reminisce about that wonderful banana popsicle, I made banana cookies. The real beauty of these is they aren’t going to drip down your arm all the way to your elbow. You may find yourself eating them with one in each hand, but there is nothing I’ve come up with to solve that problem. That is if that’s a problem for you.

If you enjoy banana popsicles as much as me feel free to make a batch of these and sit and enjoy!


To create the raised polka dots on these I let the first coat of icing dry then applied the dots.

    Does the frosting get firm enough to stack the cookies for storing? Do you refrigerate them?

    • 18

      The cookies can be stacked when the icing in completely dry (I usually wait 24 hours before stacking them) no I don’t refrigerate the cookies. They stay fresh if they are wrapped or placed in an airtight container after the icing has dried for 24 hours.Check them, if you live in a more humid area) If you put them in the container too early there will be too much moisture, so make sure the icing is completely firm.
