My family loves bananas.
Loves them. My 1-year old son would eat them all day long if I’d let him.
Because of this love, we always tend to have a ton of bananas on hand. Most of the time, they will all be gone before they even start to get brown. But sometimes, we’ll end up with a few overly ripe bananas that no one wants.
My normal reaction is to make banana bread. Banana bread always goes over well with my family. And if nothing else, I can freeze it for when a craving hits. But sometimes, I want something different. You can only eat so much banana bread, after all!
That is how these cheesecake bars were born. Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts. Combine cheesecake with bananas and put it all on top of a cookie crust for an easy to eat bar, and I’m in heaven!
So next time you find yourself with extra-ripe bananas, try something different than banana bread.
You will need Pillsbury® sugar cookie dough, cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, eggs and about 2 bananas.
