Ingredients
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 orange, zested
  • Orange Citrus Glaze:
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 orange, zested
Directions
Orange Citrus Glaze:
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Crust:
  • In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, and confectioners' sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Press evenly into bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking pan. Bake 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Filling:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, and juice until well mixed. Add 1/4 cup flour and baking powder, stirring to combine. Sprinkle in some orange zest.

  • Pour into hot baked crust, and bake 25 minutes, or until set. Cool the bars, so you may top with orange citrus glaze.

For the Orange-Citrus Glaze:
  • Add 4 cups of powdered sugar and 1/2 cup orange juice together, so that it combines to make a nice creamy glaze sauce consistency. Add orange zest. When all ingredients are mixed well, pour onto the citrus bars.
