Peanut Butter + Banana = Delicious Cookies

There's no doubt about it, peanut butter and bananas just go well together — and if you don't agree, just play along. When I saw this recipe for peanut butter and banana cookies, I couldn't believe that I'd never heard of it before. It seemed like such a no brainer, that I knew I'd have to highlight as part of our National Cookie Month coverage. If the idea of a bit of banana filling sandwiched between two delectable peanut butter cookies has you drooling, then get the recipe, just

Sweet Banana Peanut Butter Cookies
From Sugar on Food Network Canada

For Cookies
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

For Filling
1 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 tbsp golden brown sugar
1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp rum
pinch cinnamon
2 bananas, sliced
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

  1. For cookies, preheat oven to 350° F. Cream together butter and sugars until pale and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in peanut butter. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to peanut butter mixture and blend in. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and crisscross mark them with a floured fork. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until cookies just start to colour around the edges.
  2. For filling, in sauté pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add sugars and increase heat to medium-high. Stir until melted and bubbling. Add rum (watch out for flames). Add cinnamon. Stir in bananas to coat, set aside.
  3. Cream together cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth. Mash bananas and add to cream cheese mixture until smooth. Chill for 20 minutes.
  4. Fill between 2 peanut butter cookies to make sandwiches. Repeat with remaining cookies.
