These did not turn out as I had hoped. I like the idea of the citrus and raspberries, but didn't like the end result. The orange peel was terribly over powering and gave the bars a bad texture. Maybe would be good with orange juice instead of peel. Also thought there wasn't enough filling for the amount of crust.
