Lemon Brownies

{This isn't a great picture. Sorry about that.}

Awhile back, I got a great deal on a grater at a department store. I had been wanting one for awhile, and finally made the purchase. I'm so glad I did because I now know just how wonderful fresh lemon zest smells. Oh my goodness...it's amazing! If you don't know what I am talking about, get a grater and some lemons and find out. Totally worth the cost of the grater!
I intended to make lemon squares with my freshly grated lemon zest but didn't have all of the ingredients for the crust. Instead, I made these lemon brownies which were quite delicious. You might be a tad bit disappointed at first if you are expecting lemon squares, but once you remember that these are brownies you will love them! They were chewy, sweet, and tangy. Definitely yummy!
The original recipe calls for a cream cheese frosting. I did not make this, as I dusted my brownies with powdered sugar, so I will not include it here. Clink on the link below for The Seaside Baker to check out that recipe.

3/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. butter, softened

2. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
3. Add eggs one at a time and beat until completely incorporated.
4. Add lemon juice and zest and mix until combined.
5. With a wooden spoon, mix in flour and salt.
6. Pour into a greased 8x8 inch baking dish and bake for 25 minutes. Remove and cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
{I used a round baking dish because that's what was clean, so use whatever dish you have.} Pin It
