While working as the Baker
for a local bakery I created this recipe
due to the fact that there seemed
to always be over ripe banana's
left over. Not wanting to waste them
and tired of making the same
muffins and breads I came up
with these little gems.
Lark's Banana Whoopie Pie's
6 C. Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Balking Powder
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
6 Lg. Ripe Banana's~ mashed
1 1/2 C. Sour Cream
1 1/2 C. Butter~ softened
1 1/2 C. Brown Sugar
1 1/2 C. Sugar
3 tsp. Vanilla
1 tsp. Cinnamon
In a mixing bowl cream together
margarine, sugar and brown sugar,
until light and fluffy.
Add eggs and vanilla.
Sift all dry ingredients together and set aside.
Mash the bananas using a fork.
Add the sour cream to the mashed bananas.
Fold sour cream mixture in with the creamed
sugar and beat together on low for 2 minutes.
(The mixture will be very thin)
Add half of the dry ingredients, mix well.
Place in the last of the dry ingredients.
Beat until well combined.
The batter should resemble a muffin batter.
Using a cookie scoop, place 9 cookies per pan
onto a parchment lined sheet pan.
Bake for 14 minutes.
When done, the edges should be golden brown.
Let the cookies cool for about a minute,
then remove to a wire rack to cool.
*This will make it so the cookies wont “tear”
off the paper, this is a very moist cookie.
Make a sandwich by filling with a
your favorite Cream cheese frosting.
I wrap them in individual pieces of plastic wrap,
to keep them soft. These Cookies are VERY
Freezer Friendly Too!
But either way they.....
never stay around long enough to matter.
