I had made these once before using the glaze on top rather than the frosting and they were delicious.
But I had forgotten I had used the glaze (did not look at Paula's second Orange Brownie recipe) and this time made the cream cheese orange frosting which is also delicious.
Only issue: too many calories what with the butter and...
