DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Make the cookies: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vegetable oil, followed by vanilla and mashed banana.
  • Add flour mixture and stir until just incorporated.
  • Drop 1 1/2-inch balls (I do a heaping cookie scoop worth) and bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned around the edges and set in the center.
  • Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Make the filling: In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  • Blend in vanilla and confectioners’ sugar until mixture is smooth and thick.
  • Add additional confectioners’ sugar if mixture seems runny.
  • Wrap cookies individually in plastic wrap, and store in the refrigerator.
