Blood Orange Bars

Blood Orange Bars - like lemon bars, just w/ blood oranges.


Crust
  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • pinch of salt
Cream butter and sugar, then slowly add flour and salt until combined. Pour mixture into a small pan — I use a 11″x7″ glass pan. Press down with your fingers to flatten into an even layer. Bake at 350F (180C) for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Filling
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup juice, half blood orange and half lime
  • 2 Tablespoons zest, half blood orange and half lime
  • 2/3 cup flour
Whisk the sugar and eggs until blended, then add juice, zest, and flour. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Pour filling over the cooled crust. Return to the oven and bake 30-35 minutes, until set. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons powdered sugar. Cut into squares and enjoy!
