1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
1 tsp. grated orange peel
3/4 c. cold butter

4 eggs
2 c. sugar
1/3 c. lemon juice
1/4 c. flour
2 tsp. grated lemon peel
2 tsp. grated orange peel
1 tsp. baking powder

2 c. (16 oz.) sour cream
1/3 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

To prepare crust, place flour, powdered sugar, and fruit peels in a food processor. Cut in butter until crumbly. Process until mixture forms a ball. Pat dough into a greased 9x13 glass baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, until set and the edges are lightly browned. To prepare filling, whisk all filling ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Pour over cooked crust. Return to oven for 16 to 20 minutes, or until center is set. In a bowl combine topping ingredients. Spread over filling and bake an additional 7 to 9 minutes, or until topping is set. Let bars cool on a wire rack, then refrigerate overnight before serving.
