Lemon Brownies

My Meyer Lemon tree has exploded....look at all these lemons! I had to pick as many as I could before the weather freezes them out :) Sent some to friends and sent some with Big Daddy and the trees are still loaded.


Oh well, this is my first recipe with these Meyer Lemons. Loved it.
3/4 c  flour
3/4 c sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
Mix flour , sugar and salt together in big bowl, add soft butter. Mix until combined. Whisk your eggs with lemon juice and zest - now add them to flour mix. Make sure everything is incorporated and pour into 8x8" pan. Bake at 350º for 25 minutes. You can double this recipe and bake in a 9x13" pan for 30 minutes. Cool before adding glaze.
Glaze:
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
lemon zest
Mix together until smooth

Oh, how I love Meyer Lemons. How wonderful it must be to have a tree! I will have to be satisfied with buying them in the store and making these bars!

I don't know how I found your blog, but I found it and I am now drooling! Pinned a bunch of recipes so I can find them later too! I'm going to try this one this weekend to get some summer feel in this house! If you get another explosion of Lemons, I'd be happy to buy some off you! YUM fresh lemons! :)
