For all you lemon lovers, here's another great recipe you will want to try for sure. These bars are fabulous! They are not like traditional lemon bars at all. True to their name, they really do have a rich, brownie like texture, and the glaze is the perfect sweet/tart topping.
This recipe is making its rounds on the internet. I found this one on Becky Charms recipe blog.
If you are a lemon fan, this recipe is a MUST try!
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 TB lemon zest
2 TB lemon juice
Tart Lemon Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
4 TB lemon juice
8 tsp lemon zest
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or spray with Pam Baking Spray, an 8x8 inch baking dish.
Zest and juice two lemons and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and salt. Add softened butter and beat with a mixer until combined.
In a smaller bowl, whisk the eggs, lemon zest and lemon juice. Add to flour/butter mixture and beat at medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.
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 comes out clean. Do not over-bake! Cool completely before glazing.
To make the glaze, just whisk all the ingredients together. Spread 1/2 the glaze over the brownies and let it harden. Spread the remaining half over that, and let it harden again. Cut into bars and serve.
