Leave it to me to take a nice innocent fruit and turn it into a decedent  dessert! They are a little tart and sweet with a wonderful glaze on top that sends them over the top…Yum

I also love these little brownies, because there’s no mix involved and basically just ingredients you’d already have, except maybe the extract. Flour, sugar, salt, butter,eggs, extract and zest in the brownies and in the glaze, confectioner’s sugar, juice from the orange and the rest of the zest from the orange.
