This is such a unique and tasty dessert or snack. Such a nice change from the chocolate brownie. I cannot wait to make with cranberries and nuts at Thanksgiving! This recipe was posted on by Paula Deen; and the creator of this wonderful recipe was one of a hundred finalists in the 39th Pillsbury Bake-off.

Great recipe! I made this for my office cookoff competition (the contest required participants to use orange in a recipe) and won 2nd place! They really do come out with the consistancy of brownies. Very tasty! Note: Be sure to spray the pan very well, they are very moist and can stick if you don't grease the pan.
