Lemon Brownies


I cannot remember where I got this recipe, but I made them last night and they are really good. I'm a fan of lemon cakes and such, and this recipe is very easy so it will get a lot of use. Serve them up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have a simple dessert that will please everyone.

Lemon Brownies

Batter:

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
34 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp lemon zest

Glaze:

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp lemon zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 baking dish and set aside.
Zest and juice 2 large lemons.
In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat flour, sugar salt and butter until combined.
In separate bowl, whisk eggs, lemon juice and zest until combined. Pour into flour mixture and beat at medium until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
Pour into baking dish and bake 20-25 minutes, until starting to turn golden around edges and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before adding glaze.
To make glaze whisk together powdered sugar, juice and zest. Spread half over the cooled brownies and allow to set. Then spread with remaining glaze. Cut into squares and serve.
