Eton mess is an English boarding school dessert that incorporates several of my favorite things—fruit, whipped cream, and meringue—all smooshed together. If it’s made with raspberries and served in beautiful glasses, it’s also a very elegant dessert.

When I made these rich-tasting bars during Food Network Challenge’s mystery cookies challenge, the judges could not believe they were low-fat. Browning the butter is the key—it makes the crumbly cookie crust taste deceptively buttery. The addition of orange juice to the filling gets the sweet-tart balance just right with less sugar. If you wish to dust the tops with powdered sugar, do so just before serving to keep it from disappearing into the bars.
