It started from a craving for sweets, and ended up a banana chocolate chip cake-like sandwich cookie with cream cheese filling. I had only planned to make the cookies, but they needed something extra...and cream cheese frosting makes everything better!
I've never made whoopie pies (they are on my list), but these little sandwiches must be pretty close. The cookies are cakey and moist, and lightly sweetened. The filling is creamy and sweet, and the flavors are perfect together!
Banana Chocolate Cookies
1 bar cream cheese (8 oz), room temperature
1/3-1/2 cup confectioners sugar (depending on how sweet you want the filling)
1-2 tablespoons milk
Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Slowly add the confectioners sugar, a bit at a time. Add milk if needed to thin out the filling.
Put filling into a pastry bag (or a large plastic baggie, and then cut off the corner)
On the bottom of one cookie, pipe about a tablespoon of filling. Sandwich with another similar sized cookie.
