These orange bars are a great way of using up some of your Moore’s Whiskey Marmalade (see other post). With a shortbread crust and a creamy citrusy filling, these are absolutely irresistible.
300g Butter at room temp
100g Caster sugar
2tbs Moore’s Irish Whiskey Marmalade or the juice of 2 oranges
1 Orange rind
600g Caster sugar
50g Icing sugar
Pre-heat the oven to 170C fan.
For the shortbread crust, use your fingers to mix the butter, flour and caster sugar in a large bowl. Transfer this to a lined baking tray and press the mixture into the tray until it is even. Bake for 20 minutes.
for the filling, whisk together the eggs and sugar. Whisk in the flour. Finally add the orange rind and the Moore’s Whiskey Marmalade (or the juice of 2 oranges).
When the shortbread is baked, pour the filling over it and return to the tray to the oven for another 20-25 minutes or until the edges of the filling are light brown.
Allow to cool and then cut it into squares. Add icing sugar for the presentation.
