I'm making these today. Think I'll throw a handful of mini chocolate chips into the pecan mixture.
Orange Blossom Pecan Bars
2003 Dallas Morning News Christmas Cookie Contest Winner for Bars from Kim Rollings
Preheat oven to 350
¾ cup softened botter
¾ cup sifted confectioners sugar
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp finely grated orange zest
Use pastry blender or food processor to combine above until they hold together. Press into 13 X 9 pan and bake for 15 minutes. Leave oven on.
¾ cup orange marmalade
1 T. orange juice
in small bowl and set aside
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tablespoons flour
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 cup chopped pecans
Beat eggs for about a minute, then add brown sugar and vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in flour & leavening. Add pecans and mix well.
When crust has been removed from oven, spread marmalade mixture over crust to edges. Gently spoon pecan mixture over marmalade and and spread with rubber spatula to edges. Return cookies to oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes until top is nicely browned.
Cool and cut into 24 bars. Recipe calls for garnishing each with a dab of melted white chocolate & a small decorative piece of orange slice candy but they are terrific just as they are.
