Banana Cookies With Peanut Butter Filling

Paul decided to play a video game, so I decided to make delicious cookies.  I was nice, I still gave him one.

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter , softened
1 cup mashed banana (about 2 medium)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the brown sugar,  sugar, and butter in a mixing bowl.  Mix well until creamy.

Add the bananas, egg, and vanilla.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add flour mixture to the banana mixture. Mix well until it becomes a soft dough.

Depending on the size of cookie you want, drop a tablespoon of dough onto greased cookie sheet.

Bake 11 to 13 minutes, or until the tops become lightly browned.

Meanwhile, beat the peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar until well mixed.

Once the cookies have had time to cool (on a wire rack), spread about one tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture on the bottoms of half the cookies.  Make sure the cookies have had time to cool, or the filling will melt. 

Top with other half of the cookies to form a sandwiches.
