Banana Whoopie Pies!!


Chances are...if there is "Banana" desserts on the menu that is
what I will always choose above any sweet treat, Banana's Foster,
Banana Cream Pie, Banana Pudding you name it. I'm a banana
addict. This recipe had my name all over it! Try it!!!

Banana Whoopie Pies

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Filling
1 (8oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
sprinkles

1) In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, combine bananas and
buttermilk. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking
soda. Gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with banana
mixture.
2) Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto parchment paper-
lined baking sheets. Bake at 350* for 12-15 minutes. Cool for
2 minutes before removing from pans and then place on wire
rack to cool completely.
3) For filling, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter
