  1. Combine butter, 1/2 cup sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer; mix ingredients thoroughly with a paddle attachment. Mix flour into butter mixture to make a smooth dough. Press dough into a 9-inch tart pan; refrigerate crust for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  5. Bake tart until filling is set, about 20 minutes. Cool completely and dust with confectioners' sugar.
