Top Review by Sydney Mike

We found your orange bars wonderfully delicious, but then I was extremely generous when measuring the zest! We always enjoy lemon bars, but these make a very nice sweeter diversion from those! Definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in the special event All Aboard the L-O-V-E Train!]
