Orange Bars

I bookmarked this one some incomprehensible number of years ago after a search for picnic-able desserts, but never got around to it until this week. Sadly, I did not take this on a picnic, but if it’s less rainy where you are, you sure could!

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter

Filling:

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • zest from 1 orange
  • extra powdered sugar, optional

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease an 8X8″ pan.

Stir together the flour and powdered sugar of the crust, then cut in the butter until only small pieces remain. Press firmly and evenly into the pan.

IMG_6094While the crust bakes, whisk together the eggs, sugar, flour, juice, and zest.

IMG_6093Pour the mixture over the baked crust.

IMG_6095Bake 20-25 minutes, until set. The middle of mine was still jiggly at 20, but set at 25.

IMG_6097Sprinkle with extra powdered sugar, if desired, then let cool completely in the pan before cutting into bars and serving.
