It has been well established that I am "that mom". I make treats for my daughter's preschool class every time she attends. I just can't help myself. The end of the day before she attends hits and I get this strange urge to make something. Okay, I missed last week when I brought a big stash of cool juicy juice stuff for all of the kiddos to enjoy, but I figured that was enough right? I still agonized over not bringing something. Seriously what is wrong with me?
When I saw Sass & Veracity's post for Banana Whoopie Pies, a take on this post by a new favorite of mine Culinary in the Country, I knew this was something that I had to try out. Best of all, it had bananas, and I just happened to have one sitting around that was dying a slow, torterous death.
Once I made these little goodies, I knew exactly what to fill them with. Peanut butter just sounded perfect. Plus, it's for the kiddos, gotta throw a little protein in there, tee hee!
I didn't think these really fit in the category of a whoopie pie, and around the preschool it is easier just to say it's a cookie. What do you think I made, what should I call it?
makes enough for 28 cookies, or 14 filled
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
3/4 cup very ripe banana (1 small)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 c. butter, unsalted, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
