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.
