Easy Peasy Pumpkin and Banana Cookies

The  weather has really changed over the last couple of days. Its much cooler and the skies are quite grey. It even rained yesterday morning... a blessed relief after months of not even a drop. It actually feels more like autumn. 

A couple of days ago my neighbours grandson came over for a couple of hours whilst his mum and grandma ran errands. We decided to make some cookies ready for Halloween. These are so easy to make a six year old can do them...and he did! Although I think more sprinkles went into his mouth than on the cookies. I quite like them without frosting so we left some undecorated too

Pumpkin and Banana Cookies
1 pack Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix
1/2 cup softened butter
1 large egg
1 large very ripe banana
Your favourite frosting... I used cream cheese but vanilla is just as delicious

  • Pre heat oven to 350
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment
  • Mash the banana
  • In a large bowl stir together the Cookie Mix, butter, egg and banana
  • Mix until everything is combined
  • Using an ice cream scoop, drop the dough onto the baking sheet
  • Space well as the dough spreads
  • Bake for about 14 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and leave on the sheet to cool for a few minutes
  • Remove cookies to a rack to cool completely 
  • Once cool they are ready to frost
