I got the idea for these wonderful bars from another recipe I had. They turned out wonderful with my additions. I hope you try them sometime, the glaze really makes them pop.

    Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.

    Melt butter and place into a large mixing bowl, to this add sugar and stir well. Next beat in eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition.

    Add the flour mixture, beating until well combined.

    Stir in orange zest, juice and extract. Once well combined, spread into prepared pan and bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until pick inserted comes out clean.
