    8                    Firm, but ripe bananas,
                         -thinly sliced
    2       tb           Melted butter
    6       tb           Confectioners' sugar
                         Vanilla ice cream, frozen
                         -vanilla yogurt or whipped
                         -cream for serving
   1. Put rack in center of oven; heat oven to 400-degrees. Grease 6, 12-ounc
   capacity souffle or small baking dishes. (You may substitute large custard
   cups.) Set on baking sheet.
   2. Divide bananas between souffle dishes, overlapping them evenly and
   attractively. Lightly brush tops with melted butter. (Can be prepared up to
   2 hours ahead to this point and kept at room temperature.) Before cooking,
   evenly press confectioners' sugar through fine wire mesh strainer to cover
   surface, using about 1 tablespoon per serving.
   3. Bake until bananas are very warm, about 8 minutes. Turn oven to broil
   and move cookie sheet to within 8 inches of heat source. Broil until
   surface lightly browns, about 2 minutes more.
   4. Serve with a small scoop of ice cream or frozen yogurt or a dollop of
   whipped cream. Serve immediately.
