   Recipe by: Healthy Cooking for Two
        Preheat oven to 350 degrees; lightly coat cookie sheets with vegetable
   cooking spray.  In a large bowl, cream 3/4 cup margarine and sugar; add the
   egg whites, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and mashed bananas. In a small bowl,
   combine the flour and baking soda; add the the banana mixture, 1/2-cup at a
   time, mixing well.
        Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheets.  Bake for 8 minutes, or
   until just browned around the edges; remove to wire racks to cool. For the
   frosting, in a small saucepan, combine 1 tablespoon margarine, milk and
   brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium
   and continue to boil for 2 minutes.  Remove from the heat; add the powdered
   sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, beating until smooth. It may be
   necessary to adjust the milk or sugar to get the desired spreading
   consistency.  Spread a thin layer of frosting on each cookie. Let the icing
   harden before storing the cookies. Penny Halsey (ATBN65B). Nutrition
