  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until lightly browned.
    Sugar Cookie Dough
  • Allow the dough to cool COMPLETELY. (Mine took a couple of hours to cool.) After baked dough has cooled, it’s time to make the frosting.

  • OPTIONAL: Glaze to keep the bananas from browning. (Great option if you are making this recipe a few hours before serving.) You can make the glaze while the crust is still cooling. I let the glaze cool completely before I brushed it over the fruit so that the bananas did not turn brown from the heat.

  • In a saucepan, bring the sugar, orange juice, water, lemon juice, cornstarch and salt to a boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes or until thickened.

  • When glaze has cooled completely, brush over fruit.
  • Store in the refrigerator until it’s time to serve. This dessert tastes best if you make it the same day you are planning to serve it.

  • SERVING TIP: We actually sliced the cookie crust into squares BEFORE we frosted it. Then we covered it with the frosting, fruit and glaze. This made serving pre-cut slices to party guests a snap!
