Frosted Banana Bars

Even if you don't like "banana stuff" you'll like these bars.  This recipe is that good!  I don't generally like things made with bananas, but I do these.  And many in the same boat as I have told me the same.

I got this recipe from a good friend who got it from her daughter.  Thanks so much, Margaret!

1/2 c butter, softened
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
8 oz sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)

In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar.  Add eggs, sour cream and vanilla.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt and gradually add to the creamed mixture.  Stir in bananas.  Spread into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool.


8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 c butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 3/4 to 4 c powered sugar

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until smooth.  Gradually beat in enough powered sugar to achieve desired consistency.  Frost bars and store in the refrigerator.
