Ingredients

For Crust

  • 1/3 cup Butter or Margarine to make dairy free
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Flour

For Filling

  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Flour
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1/4 cup Orange Juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder

Topping

  • Powder Sugar if desired

Instructions

  • In a bowl beat the butter. Add the sugar and cream until well combined.
  • Add the flour and mix until crumbly. The crust mixture will not come together into a dough, it will be dry.
  • Dump the crust mixture into a 9-inch un-greased baking dish. Press down firmly and evenly.
  • Bake in a 350-degree oven until lightly browned about 16-18 minutes.
  • While the crust is cooking, add the filling ingredients into a bowl and beat until well combined.
  • Once the crust is done baking pour the filling on top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the filling is browned on the edges and set in the middle.
  • Cool on a wired rack.
  • Sprinkle powdered sugar on top if desired.

Notes

To make these dairy free, you only need to use dairy free margarine instead of butter.
