If you think that brownies can only be chocolate……Then you are missing out something unique. If you are willing to take a leap………
Lemon Brownies! Dense with a rocking clean citrus flavor.
Makes 8×8 Pan
Recipe from Roz la bella vita- Via Pinterest
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Tart Lemon Glaze
1 rounded cup confectioners sugar
4 tablespoon lemon juice
8 teaspoons lemon zest
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease spray 8×8 baking dish with baking spray and set aside
2. Zest and juice two lemons; set aside.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the flour, sugar, salt, and the softened butter until combined.
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined. Pour into the flour mixture and beat at medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
5. Pour into baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until just starting to turn golden brown around the edges, and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before glazing.
6. Sift the powdered sugar, add lemon zest and juice, and whisk together the ingredients. Spread 1/2 the glaze over the brownies with a rubber spatula. Let the glaze set. Spread the remaining glaze over the bars, and let it sit.
7. Cut into bars and enjoy!

If it can't be chocolate, it has to be lemon for me. I know I'd love these!
They look wonderful, and no I 'm thinking of what Meyer lemons would do to the recipe. I'm a citrus fiend…so this is on my street, up my alley!
