Recipe Comments & Reviews

If I make this again I would definitely add orange zest both to the batter and to the frosting. It didn't have enough orange taste for my liking.
So yummy!I love making cookie bars because they are so simple. While I like them without the frosting, I like them even better with the frosting, and always use the orange rind for extra flavor.
