Ingredients

Caramelized Banana Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into tablespoon-sized pieces
  • 3 ripe bananas

Spritz Cookie Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup caramelized bananas from above
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • caramel sauce to taste (optional)

Instructions

Caramelized Banana Instructions

  • Melt brown sugar and butter in a small saucepan on medium-high heat, stirring periodically.
  • Once melted, add bananas. Continue to stir and cook until bananas fall apart in butter/sugar mixture and the mixture just begins to boil. Remove from heat.

Spritz Cookie Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat butter, brown sugar, and 3/4 cup of the caramelized bananas together. (Depending on the size of your bananas, you may have some caramelized bananas left. Save them to sandwich between two cookies!)
  • Mix in the egg yolks, salt, and vanilla.
  • Add the flour a little bit at a time until just combined.
  • Load the cookie press with batter and press dough onto an UNGREASED cookie sheet (no parchment, no Silpat, no nothing).
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until the bottoms of the cookies just begin to get golden brown.
  • Let cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Optionally, create cookie sandwiches using extra caramelized bananas and caramel sauce.
