GOOEY ORANGE BARS 
YIELD: 16 bars

INGREDIENTS FOR CRUST:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar 

INGREDIENTS FOR FILLING:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 & 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 navel oranges
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • powdered sugar for dusting {optional}

COOKING DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 pan with cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the butter, sugar & flour for the crust in a medium bowl until well combined ~ I used my hands to mix. Spread the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust is set & just beginning to golden.
  3. While the crust is baking, prepare the filling: in a small bowl, zest 1 of your oranges. In another small bowl, juice both oranges. Using a mixer at medium speed, mix together the eggs, sugar, orange zest from 1 orange, orange juice from 2 oranges, and flour.
  4. Pour the orange mix over the baked crust and bake for an additional 30-35 minutes or until light golden brown.
  5. Let it cool completely. Cut into 16 bars & sift the powdered sugar over the top if desired.

    These are scrumptious. I just came back to find the recipe again. For all of you talking about lemon, forget about it. lol These are so good they deserve to be separate and singled out as an amazing dessert in their own right.
