I found this recipe in "Cooking with Paula Deen" I don't believe its one of her recipes though. I think it came from Florida's Natural orange juice. Thought I would share the recipe. I love oranges. I can't wait to try these.

I found these bars lacking in citrus flavor and I even added a couple of drops of orange extract..The base was so rich,not worth the calories,sorry...

I've made these twice....thanks Marsha for posting the recipe here.. THESE ARE easy to make and have a wonderful flavor and texture. I've had several requests for them after taking them to a church supper.
