These were awesome. More than awesome. I didn't have any orange extract, so I used two oranges, zested them and juiced them into a saucepan, and let it reduce over super low heat. I then used it in place of the extract. I don't think the orange flavor was as intense as it would have been with the extract, but it was amazing, none the less. I wasn't sure how to bake them, since it looked like everyone baked them in a 9 by 13, but the instructions said to bake them on a baking sheet. I ended up using a jelly roll pan and baking them as directed, and they came out perfect. I used a different cream cheese frosting...1 pkg cream cheese, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 cup whipping cream, and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Whip the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla in one bowl, and the whipping cream in another. Fold together. Awesome. I should have used some orange in there as suggested, because it would have really amped up the flavor, but oh well. Next time!
