Deluxe Marshmallow Brownies Recipe

I found this recipe in a garden club cookbook many years ago. I always serve these at Fourth of July picnics and at church suppers.—Martha Stine, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:35 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, cubed

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions
