Banana Whoopie Pies

Banana Whoopie Pies by Fitri D. // Rumah Manis
 
Its my fault - always buy banana every time to go grocery and you know what happened ? there is always 1 or 2 an old banana in the corner of pantry. And getting tired of banana bread, I decide to make a whoopie pie .. hmm.. surprise I do love this kind of little cookies. Easy peasy .. and I think my little one and my cookie monster (eer.. my hubby, I mean) will like it too
 
Banana Whoopie Pie
Ingredients : - make 12

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large ripe banana, mashed
1/2 cup sour cream or any kind of plain yoghurt
4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar, plus more for dusting


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a bowl. Combine banana and sour cream in another bowl.

2. Beat butter and granulated and brown sugars with a mixer on medium-high speed, until pale and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, beating until incorporated. Add banana mixture in 2 additions, alternating with flour mixture.

3. Transfer batter to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/4-inch plain tip. Pipe batter into 1 1/4-inch rounds on baking sheets, spacing rounds 1 1/2 inches apart.

4. Bake until edges are golden, about 12 minutes. Slide parchment, with cookies, onto wire racks. Let cool. (Unfilled cookies can be stored for up to 1 day.)

5. Beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla with a mixer on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.

6. Pipe or spoon 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture onto the flat sides of half the cookies. Sandwich with remaining cookies. Dust with confectioners' sugar, and serve immediately.

I love banana bread, but it's true, it's the first thing every one thinks of when they see leftover pisang bonyor LOL Next time maybe I will try whoopie pies - a friend gave me a whoopie pie pan long ago, I still haven't used it. Good excuse to try now :)
