I don’t often cave into sharing ideas I come across on Pinterest….especially ones I have come across a dozen times. However, these lemon blondies are good enough my friends, it would be wrong for me not to share. Once cooled, the texture slightly resembles mixing together the curd and the crust of a lemon bar in the most divine way possible.
I loved them, the kids loved them, and they were easy. They help me dream about summer in the middle of winter.
For the Bars:
- 1/2 cup butter one stick, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Zest of 1 1/2 medium lemons
- 3/4 cup flour
For the Glaze:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- Zest of 1/2 medium lemon
Preheat oven to 350 F
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing until smooth.
Add salt, lemon juice, and zest. Mix until combined.
Add flour. Mix until combined.
Pour batter into 8 x 8 baking pan.
Bake for 23-25 minutes, until edges are just browning and toothpick comes out clean.
While the bars are in the oven, mix powdered sugar, juice, and zest together in a bowl until it forms a smooth mixture.
Pour glaze mixture over warm blondies when removing from oven.
Once bars have cooled, cut into 16 squares.
