Frosted Banana Bars

Many of you have probably had or even tried bars similar to these ones, but you know what, well, you can never have to many banana bars or be reminded of making them again. Cause lets be honest, we all have those brown bananas sitting on our counter tops just screaming at us to make these delicious bars or even this delicious bread.

For the Bars:
1/2 cup butter (softened)
2 cups Sugar
3 eggs
1-1/2 cup mashed banana (about 3 ripe bananas)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 (8oz) pkg. of cream cheese
1/2 cup butter (1 stick softened)
4 cups Powdered Sugar
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs, bananas, and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda and stir into the creamed mixture just until blended.  Now take a greased (I like to use Bakers Joy for this dish) 15-inch x 10-inch x 1-inch jelly roll pan and lightly sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on to the bottom of the greased pan. Now pour the batter onto the pan and Bake @ *350 for 18-22 minutes. 

For the Frosting, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Slowly mix in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Spread over the cooled bars and serve.  Makes about 3 dozen bars.
