2008 Category Winner: Roasted Banana Bars with Browned Butter–Pecan Frosting

"I have been baking banana bars with my mother since I was old enough to stir the batter, so I was pleased when I was able to lighten them for my family and still maintain the original flavor. I browned butter in a saucepan to enhance its richness, thus eliminating the need for full-fat cream cheese. This is a great way to use ripe, speckled bananas." ―Lindsay Weiss, Overland Park, KS
