Easy Lemon Brownies


Ugh, the flu bug has sabotaged the entire family. Sore throats, fever, chills, the works... I will save you the gritty details but I swear this is the worst germ year to date. I'm calling it Germ2k14. Yuck.

So I apologize for being out of the blogosphere and barely posting each week. I promise once we are all healthy you will be bombarded with yummies.

Please accept these yummy lemon brownies as an apology. They are flavorful, tart, and whip up quickly (so you can impress people even when your house is covered in cooties).

You will need:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 Tablespoons lemon zest
2 Tablespoons lemon juice


For the Glaze:
Juice and Zest from 2 lemons
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease an 8" pan... Set aside.


In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugar, flour, and salt until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice.  Pour egg/lemon mixture into the flour mixture and beat at medium speed until smooth and creamy.

Pour into prepared baking dish and spread the top evenly. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until set and golden around the edges. DO NOT over bake as the brownies will become dry.
Set aside to cool completely.

When brownies are completely cooled, whisk together the ingredients for the glaze and drizzle over the top of the brownies, spreading to the edges.

This glaze will set but not become hard. The tart lemon pairs so well with the moist brownies.
Delish!!
