Lemonies

For the love of Lemons – When life gives you them you make – LEMONIES

The Lemon version of a brownie without the chocolate. I never thought I would turn my back on a brownie but with these I make an exception. Simple ingredients that you may already have sitting right there in your kitchen can produce a moist heavenly lil lemon square that will make you want to make them all over again and again.

** Sweet tip – I love to serve these with a scoop of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and a sprinkling of fresh berries an assortment of (Raspberries, Blueberries and Strawberries).

Ingredients
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour {King Arthur All-Purpose Flour}
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt {Sea Salt}
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Tart Lemon Glaze:
  • 1 rounded cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 8 teaspoons lemon zest
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease/Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter/cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Zest and juice two small/large lemons; set aside. {whatever you have}
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixture fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the flour, sugar, salt, and 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 23-25 minutes, or until just starting to turn golden around the edges and a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before glazing. Do not overbake, or the bars will be dry. {even with the yummy glaze}
  6. When Lemonies are cooled completely, make the glaze…sift the powdered sugar, add lemon zest and juice, and whisk together all three ingredients. Spread ½ the glaze over the brownies with a rubber spatula. Let glaze set. Spread the remaining glaze over the bars, and let it set. This glaze does not harden like most. Cut into bars, and serve!
