Lemon Brownies!


As I have said before,  I love anything lemon and especially lemon desserts!!!  Therefore, a  "Lemon Brownie" sounded really yummy to me and it really is a great concept!!!  These are the perfect combination of tart and sweet and they disappeared fast at our house!!!    They are super easy to make and are made 100% from scratch!!!   We loved them!!!

Here is what you will need:

1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
3 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. lemon zest
2 cups self rising flour***
1 tsp. vanilla

***you can use all purpose flour, just add 1 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt

2 cups confectioner's sugar
3 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. lemon zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large mixing bowl, with an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together.  Add eggs and beat until combined.  Add the lemon juice, lemon zest, flour and vanilla.  Beat until just incorporated.  You need about 4-5 nice size fresh lemons total for the brownies and the glaze!  

Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish liberally  with nonstick baking spray!   Spread the batter evenly in the pan.

Place in the preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 25 -27 minutes.  Don't over bake!   Allow to cool completely.

In a bowl whisk together the confectioner's sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest to make a glaze!!!  Pour over the cooled brownies and spread evenly.   Allow to sit and set up a little for a couple of hours.

Cut in squares and serve!!!  

These are so yummy!!!
