Lemon brownies are insanely delicious fudgy lemon bars with a sweet lemon cream cheese glazed. They're sometimes called lemonies or lemon blondies - but either way they mean delicious.
Servings 9 squares
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- 3 oz white chocolate
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tbsp lemon zest
- 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
Lemon Cream Cheese Glazee
- 2 oz cream cheese
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 - 1.5 cups powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 325F degrees. Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper, or line with aluminium foil and lightly grease.
Add the butter and white chocolate to a glass bowl and microwave for 30 second increments, stirring between each until melted.
Stir in the sugar, followed by the eggs. Make sure that the mixture isn't too hot or else you can scramble the eggs.
Gently fold in the lemon zest and lemon juice, then fold in the flour.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top looks set.
Lemon Cream Cheese Glaze
Beat together the cream cheese and lemon juice until soft.
Slowly beat in the powdered sugar until the desired sweetness is reached.
Ice the cooled lemon brownies, then optionally decorate with lemon slices and lemon zest.
