Orange Shortbread Bar

Orange Shortbread Bar

Yield:  ¼ sheet pan or 8”x8” pan

By:  Tara Johnson - Tender Greens Irvine

This week, I wanted to highlight some of our amazing citrus that we have been getting from VR Green Farms out of San Clemente, CA.  I used some of our minneola tangelos and have created a light and refreshing orange shortbread bar.  If you can’t find minneola tangelos, any other orange variety may be substituted.

Ingredients for Crust:

          3 sticks of butter

          ¾ cup granulated sugar

          Zest of 3 minneola tangelos

          1 teaspoon salt

          3 cups of all-purpose flour

Directions:

  1. Cream the butter, sugar and zest together in the mixer with a paddle attachment until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the salt to the flour and mix into the butter mixture in 3 additions.Mix until combined.
  3. Prepare a ¼ sheet pan or 8”x 8” pan with pan spray and press the shortbread dough into the pan in an even layer.
  4. Bake at 325 degrees until the crust is golden brown around the edges; about 15-18 minutes. Set aside and cool completely. 

Ingredients for Orange Layer:

         2 cups minneola tangelo segments

         6 egg yolks

         1 1/3 cup granulated sugar

         ½ cup orange juice

         Zest of 2 oranges

Directions:

  1. Put the tangelo segments in a blender or food processor with the orange juice and sugar.Blend until the pieces are broken up into a pulp.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks and zest together.
  3. Add the orange mixture to the egg yolk mixture and whisk until combined.
  4. Strain the orange mixture through a strainer and pour the filling over the cooled crust.
  5. Very carefully, place the pan in the oven and bake at 325 degrees for about 25-30 minutes, or until the crust is set and the center does not wiggle.
  6. Cool the bar to room temperature, then refrigerate until firm.Leave the bar in the cooler overnight for best results.To serve, cut into squares or any desired shape and sprinkle generously with powdered sugar. Chill any extra portions.
