Orange Dream Bars

Prep Time:

40 Minutes

Cook Time:

1 Hour


24 bars




1 cup (226g) unsalted butter

2 cups (248g) all-purpose flour

½ cup (100g) granulated sugar

¼ teaspoon salt


½ cup (119ml) fresh squeezed orange juice

Zest of 1 orange

1 teaspoon orange extract 

1 ½ cups (150g) granulated sugar

¼ cup (31g) all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

4 large eggs

Powdered sugar for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 9×13” pan with foil or parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Beat butter with a hand or a stand mixer until creamy, then add the flour, sugar, and salt and beat until a dough forms. (If you’re using a hand mixer it will take extra time.) Press the crust into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 18 minutes.

  3. A few minutes before the crust comes out of the oven, prepare the filling. Place all filling ingredients into a blender jar and blend until smooth, a few seconds to almost a minute, depending on your blender. You can also do this with a whisk in a large bowl.

  4. Carefully pour filling evenly over the hot crust. Return to the oven and bake until the top is no longer jiggly, about 20-23 minutes. Cool completely before dusting with powdered sugar and slicing into bars
