Rich 'n' Buttery Bars Recipe

You'll keep a cake mix on hand just to make these deliciously rich bars from Ann Horst of Boonsboro, Maryland. "They're fancy enough to stir up for a bake sale," she says. "And they always disappear quickly."

  • 1/2 cup cold butter

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Additional confectioners' sugar
