Ingredients:

For Lemon Brownies:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest (from about 2 lemons)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For Lemon Glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Additional lemon zest (optional, for garnish)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Prepare Lemon Brownie Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
    • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
    • Stir in the lemon zest and fresh lemon juice until well combined.
    • Gradually add the flour and salt to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix.
  3. Bake Lemon Brownies:
    • Spread the lemon brownie batter evenly into the prepared baking pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs (not wet batter).
  4. Cool Brownies:
    • Allow the lemon brownies to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before glazing.
  5. Prepare Lemon Glaze:
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and fresh lemon juice until smooth and pourable. Adjust the consistency by adding more juice or sugar as needed.
  6. Glaze the Brownies:
    • Once the brownies are completely cooled, drizzle the lemon glaze evenly over the top using a spoon or spatula.
    • Spread the glaze gently to cover the entire surface of the brownies.
  7. Chill and Serve:
    • Place the glazed lemon brownies in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to allow the glaze to set.
    • Optionally, sprinkle additional lemon zest over the top for extra lemon flavor and a decorative touch before cutting into squares and serving.
  8. Enjoy:
    • Serve these delicious lemon brownies as a sweet and tangy dessert or snack. Store any leftover brownies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for freshness.

These lemon brownies with lemon glaze are perfect for citrus lovers and are sure to brighten up any occasion with their refreshing flavor. Enjoy the moist and tangy goodness in every bite!
