Lemonies

That’s like brownies, but lemon flavored, if you couldn’t figure it out. Different from how I picture lemon bars, as they don’t have a crust or a sort or smooshy layer, but they do have plenty of lemon flavor!

IMG_5899Ingredients:

Lemonies:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate ganache, optional (but why wouldn’t you?)

For the Lemon Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8X8″ pan.

Beat together the butter, sugar, and lemon zest until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating 20 seconds after each.

Sooon I will be back to a mixer with a paddle attachment!

Add the salt and flour and beat in on low speed. Spread the batter in the greased pan.

IMG_5888Spread the ganache over top. I did mine in a pattern but it didn’t end up showing, so that doesn’t matter at all. Oh, and mine was leftover from the white chocolate strawberry thumbprints!

IMG_5889Bake 20-25 minutes, until it passes the toothpick test. Mine took 25.

IMG_5890Let cool completely in the pan.

Whisk together the glaze ingredients.

IMG_5892Spread over the top of the lemonies, then let set for ten minutes before serving.

IMG_5894Not a ton of ingredients, and an easy way to use up the lemon that’s about to go weird in the back of your fridge!
