    Wonderful recipe! I have tried other kinds of recipes similar to this but they have always gotten very hard very quickly after cooling. With the glaze drizzled over though, I think this kept them very moist even later in the day. I also loved the fact that they did not taste like baby aspirin. My husband loves that kind of orange flavor but I don't so this was a recipe that we both enjoyed.

    I made these this weekend and everyone adored them. I had no sour cream and we were all too ill to go to the store so I subbed yogurt with good results. Also I had my 13 x 9 pan full of brownies so I just baked these on a cookie sheet and then drizzled each one individually after cooking. I actually think I will do them that way again as it made for a bit less glaze if one wanted less.

    I made this in my ABM on dough cycle. I'm sorry to say I found these too sweet for my taste. If I make them again I will just use about 1/4 cup sugar mixed with the orange zest. I followed the glaze ingredients exactly but thought there was to much of it. I think 1/2 the glaze would be enough. This is just my opinion and others may enjoy them as is. —UPDATE--I was outnumbered 3 to 1 on these. The other 3 said they were delicious just the way they are so I am making this a 5* instead of 4*
