Lemon Blondies – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

My brother-in-law is in town to celebrate his 60th birthday and he just loves lemon, so I made him these lemon blondies as a pre-birthday dessert when he arrived.  Luscious lemon blondies are a cross between a bar and a cake, but there is no crust or lemon custard poured over top, just a buttery batter with both lemon zest and lemon juice added for some citrus taste.  The whole dessert is made with just a few ingredients and baked in one pan.  A quick glaze is spread over top to create an even sweeter lemon infusion that is super delicious.

I sliced and served a few blondies to kick-off the weekend and saved the rest for each day to snack on while he was in town.  I can’t say enough how easy these bars are to make and they taste so lemony good that I will definitely put them in my baking repertoire.  They make a great dessert for birthday celebrations or for dinner parties when you want a lemon dessert in no time at all.
