Heavenly banana bars with cleaved Fisher walnuts and cream cheddar icing. 

So it at long last has a craving for spring – kinda. The trees are beginning to bud and like clockwork the temps will warm somewhat and the sun will look out from behind a cover of mists. Not immaculate climate, but rather it's certainly advance, so we'll take it! 

With spring climate comes patio grills and offhand engaging with family and companions. There's truly nothing superior to getting together amid the spring season; be that as it may, once in a while I observe menu wanting to be somewhat dubious.

I'm infatuated with these banana bars since I feel like they thoroughly conquer any hindrance amongst winter and spring. They're stacked with Fisher walnuts and finished with a delightfully rich and smooth cream cheddar icing. Cutting them into triangular shapes and channeling on a twirl of icing makes them somewhat more exceptional, so they're totally ideal for a Mother's Day early lunch or an outing in the recreation center.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
1 cup chopped Fisher Walnuts
For the Frosting
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in baking pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy; about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time to the creamed mixture. Mix in sour cream and vanilla until fully incorporated into the batter.
3. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter and sugar mixture and mix until combined. Stir in bananas and walnuts until they are fully incorporated into the batter.
4. Evenly spread batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated over for 25 minutes or until the a toothpick inserted into the center of the bars comes out clean. Remove pan to a cool rack to cool completely.
5. While the bars are cooling, prepare the cream cheese frosting. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter on medium-high speed for about 3 minutes. Mix in the vanilla. With the mixer on low, gradually add in the confectioners' sugar and mix until fully combined. Turn mixer up to medium-high speed and beat until super fluffy; about 3-4 minutes. Use an offset spatula to frost the bars or pipe the frosting onto the bars using a small round piping tip (see not below).

- Refrigerate bars in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
