Lemon Brownies



When I found Lemon Brownies on Carol's blog There's Always Thyme To Cook, I dropped what I was doing and made them almost immediately. 
Here's the recipe for the Lemon Brownies. YUM!

Source: Marilyn (DanaIN, Cooking Forum)


1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter; room temperature

4 eggs

Juice from 1/2 lemon

Zest from 1 lemon

1 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Additional lemon zest for garnish

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Line the bottom only of a 9X13X2-inch baking dish with Parchment paper and spray with Pam. In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar and salt; add butter. Stir together eggs, juice from 1/2 lemon and zest from 1 lemon; stir into batter and pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until set, use a toothpick to check. Remove from oven and cool on a rack. When brownies are cool prepare glaze by stirring together powdered sugar and 2 tablespoon lemon juice; drizzle over brownies and sprinkle with additional lemon zest.

  3. These look so great! They remind me of a soft lemon shortbread. I just bought some lemons last night -- being the great mother and wife that I am :) I am going to make them today. Joni

    Oh yeah, forgot, my friend hasn't been to the store to look for those napkin rings. But I told her so if she ever gets there, she has a pic.
