Easy Company Bars

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling


1-1/2 dozen

When my husband and I were newlyweds, he had the habit of inviting people to our house at the spur of the moment for cake and coffee. I had to come up with a recipe both good and quick to fix. After testing these bars a few time, I found I could have them made not long after the coffee was brewed.


  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup finely chopped nuts
  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. Coat an 8-in. square baking dish with the melted butter. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Gradually beat in brown sugar and vanilla just until combined. Combine flour and baking soda; stir into the egg mixture. Fold in nuts. Pour batter evenly over butter; do not stir.
  2. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly; sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Cut into bars. Cool completely.
