Lemon Brownies

If you think that brownies can only be chocolate......Then you are missing out something unique.  If you are willing to take a leap.........

Ta da......

Lemon Brownies!  Dense with a rocking clean citrus flavor.


 Lemon  Brownies
Makes 8x8 Pan
Recipe from Roz la bella vita- Via Pinterest


Ingredients:

The Batter
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Tart Lemon Glaze
1 rounded cup confectioners sugar
4 tablespoon lemon juice
8 teaspoons lemon zest

Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease spray 8x8 baking dish with baking spray and set aside

2.  Zest and juice two lemons; set aside.

3.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the flour, sugar, salt, and the softened butter until combined.

4.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined.  Pour into the flour mixture and beat at medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.

5.  Pour into baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until just starting to turn golden brown around the edges, and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Allow to cool completely before glazing.

6.  Sift the powdered sugar, add lemon zest and juice, and whisk together the ingredients.  Spread 1/2 the glaze over the brownies with a rubber spatula.  Let the glaze set.  Spread the remaining glaze over the bars, and let it sit.

7. Cut into bars and enjoy!

This certainly caught my eye! I will be making these while our sons are home. The older one loves lemon bars and I think these brownies will be a more than acceptable change.

Best,
Bonnie

If it can't be chocolate, it has to be lemon for me. I know I'd love these!

They look wonderful, and no I 'm thinking of what Meyer lemons would do to the recipe. I'm a citrus fiend...so this is on my street, up my alley!
