- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 rounded cup powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoon lemon juice
- 4-8 teaspoons lemon zest
Preheat oven to 350. Grease or spray an 8x8 baking pan; set aside.
Zest and juice two small/large lemons; set aside. In a large bowl, beat the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and softened butter until combined (you can use a stand mixer or hand mixer). 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.
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 of the brownies comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before glazing. Do not overbake, or the bars will be dry.
To make the glaze, sift the powdered sugar, add lemon zest and juice, and whisk together all three ingredients. Spread 1/2 the glaze over the brownies with a rubber spatula. Let glaze set. Spread the remaining glaze over the bars, and let it set. (This glaze sets but does not harden like most). Cut into bars and serve!
