Best-Ever Banana Bars


2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup shortening, melted
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl; set aside. Mix bananas, shortening, eggs and vanilla in another mixing bowl; blend well. Add banana mixture to flour mixture; stir until just moistened. Pour into a greased 15"x10" baking sheet; bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until center springs back when touched. Top with cream cheese frosting and cut into bars.

Makes 2 dozen
