FROSTED BANANA BARS

How is it that bananas look great one day, and the next day they're all brown?  So, what to do.....I have an awesome banana bread recipe, but I thought it was time for something a bit different.  In scouring the recipes on the interest, I stopped with frosted banana bars.  I mean.  How could they not be good? 
Here you go....so moist and full of banana goodness finished off with a cream cheese frosting!  They're so good and this recipe makes about 3 dozen!!  I actually froze some to save for another time.

INGREDIENTS:

½ cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1½ cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda 
dash salt

FROSTING: 

1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
½ cup butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract


DIRECTIONS:
 

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in the eggs, bananas and vanilla.  Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into creamed mixture just until blended.

Transfer to a greased or sprayed 15x10x1 inch baking pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan on a wire rack.

Beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy.  Add sugar and vanilla; beat until smooth.  Frost bars.  

Enjoy!
