Must Try Lemon Brownies
The lemon glaze is what really transforms these lemon brownies. It takes minimal to no effort to create this tangy and citrus flavored glaze to pour on top of the sweet blondie brownies. Don’t just think these are like lemon squares, they are far different, these are true lemon blondies, that are soft, slightly tart, sweet, and will not disappoint anyone under any circumstance. They stay nice and moist for days, thanks to that heavenly glaze you pour on top. These are a great way to tell if you truly have self-control or not. I quickly realized I don’t have much self-control. And I don’t feel guilty about eating 3 of these in one day! Well, maybe just a little guilty!
I am far from over this winter cold we have been having and I dream of warmer days. Lemon is a flavor that from the flavor and colors just screams warmth and sunshine, and I couldn’t wait another day to make something that had a little zest of lemon. Lemon makes me happy, and after a long gray winter, I needed some sunshine in my day to brighten up and smile!
