Banana Bars

I had good intentions of eating bananas and in a way I did, as did others.  I prefer them slightly green and these ripened faster than anticipated and it had been a long time since I made this recipe and decided it was going to be an Easter dessert.  Naturally you need a cream cheese icing to top off these bars.




Banana Bars

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups flour

Cream together butter and sugar.  Mix in eggs, sour cream and vanilla.  Stir in the dry ingredients.  Spread out in a greased 10 x 15 pan.  Bake for 22 minutes at 350°.  Allow to cool completely before icing.

Cream Cheese Icing

1/2 cup butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar

Mix together until all ingredients are evenly combined.  Spread carefully over the banana bars.
