4 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. orange juice

Preheat oven to 325.

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, and powdered sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two butter knives until mixture is crumbly. Press evenly into bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking pan. Bake 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.


In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, and juice until well mixed. Add 1/4 cup of flour and baking powder, stirring to combine. Sprinkle in some orange zest. Pour into hot baked crust, and bake 25 minutes, or until set. Cool bars so you can top with glaze. For glaze mix ingredients together and top the cooled bars.
