BANANA CREAM COOKIES: Butter With A Side of Bread

My husband loves banana cream pies. Since I don’t always have the time to whip up a pie (but I always have time for cookies ha ha) when I heard about this recipe I was excited to try something new. Especially if it would be an easy way to satisfy his craving and my love of cookies – which it totally did! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
