    I made a gluten free version of this recipe using my trusty substitution for all-purpose flour, and it tastes delicious! The cream cheese filling is velvety smooth and complements the banana cookies very well.

    I did this for a party of 45. It is a fairly standard recipe and results in something which is more novelty than anything else. Be sure the bananas are adequately ripened as the flavor literally depends upon this. I used a pastry bag and ΒΌ" tip. And though I increased the recipe by one-and-a-half, I'd say the yield was double what was anticipated. And I used a ring mold to draw a few circles on my parchment paper. The result was a very consistent size. Do not change recipe.

    I just made these for 60+ high school students and they were a hit. I loved how quick and easy they were to make. I used a small cookie scoop instead of piping the cakes and they came out great. My only issue was the cream cheese "frosting"... it was an odd texture, almost gluey. When I make these again I think I will use my old favorite recipe for cream cheese frosting.

    Just made them today and they are mahvalus!!! I made them with a "00" scoop to keep them the same size. It took some time but the size was exactly "bite-size". I added dark rum instead of the vanilla and I rolled the edges in finely chopped it was like eating a piece of banana walnut cake!! I have enough frosting for 2 more batches....I love this cookie a lot!! danylo ")

    These were great! Made per request for my 2nd graders. We love homemade whoopie pies and this take on them was yummy! Make sure you mix ingredients in the order instructed, this is imperative when making whoopie pies of any sort, to make sure your dough doesn't to glue.

    In my past experience with whoopie pies, the cookie parts rise too much instead of spreading and are too big for size; does anyone have any suggestions?

    Starr, you would not taste the sour cream at all. I bake with it all the time.
