Instructions:

Crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Combine the flour, butter, sugar and salt in a food processor; pulse until crumbly. Firmly press the dough into a 9 x 13-inch (3 L) baking pan lined with foil.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes or until pale golden around the edges.

Filling:

  1. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar and flour until a very thick paste forms. Whisk in the apple cider, orange zest, cinnamon, baking powder and nutmeg until smooth.
  2. Reduce the oven temperature to 300°F (150°C). Pour the egg mixture over the hot crust. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until just set. Cool to room temperature. Chill for at least 4 hours or until firm. Dust the top with the icing sugar and slice into bars.
  • Make-ahead: Transfer the bars to an airtight container and store, in the refrigerator, for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
  • Ingredient Source: If apple cider isn’t available at the supermarket, use any cold pressed apple juice available. Or, try purchasing a cup of fresh cider from a local coffee house.
