There are two reasons why I've made these scrumptious tangerine lime bars. First off, I love tangerine and lime flavours so much, I think they need to be stars of more foods. Secondly, my tangerine and lime trees really outdid my lemon tree this year, so when I went to pick fruit in my garden, this was the best idea for a sweet treat! This a very simplified recipe, so there is no egg separating or tempering necessary. The flavours aren't as tart as lemon bars, they're well rounded and velvety. I hope you give these a try. :)

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 14-18 bars


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3 tangerines
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a 9x13 inch pan. Whisk together the 2 cups flour and powdered sugar in a bowl.

There seems to be something wrong with the way the recipe is printed. The ingredient list doesnt show the flour,baking powder,sugar for the tangerine/lime mixture-only for the crust. Could this be a problem with my iPad (its acting a bit wonky lately) or did any one else notice this?

You are right! For the citrus filling, the ingredient list is missing:


1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Thanks, Marianne!
