Lemon “Brownies” with Lemon Glaze – Sweet & Fresh

Lemon Brownies

When I started writing this blog, I never considered the amount of food that I would be surround by at all times. It seems like that should have been an obvious thought, but whatever… Today, I finally realized that I need to find some people to force all of this food on. Don’t get me wrong, it is delicious, but when I make something like I did today, I just want to keep coming back for more! These Lemon “Brownies” with Lemon Glaze will have you hooked! They have the sweet and sour taste of lemon bars, but the texture and consistency of a super fudgy brownie and a lemon glaze to top it all off.

When making these Lemon “Brownies” with Lemon Glaze, you will definitely want to be sure to use fresh lemon juice. The flavor will be noticeably better. I used pretty large lemons, and it only took two to get the amount of juice and zest that I needed. I used sour cream in this recipe to help the brownies stay moist for longer than they would without. Also, the cornstarch helps to give these brownies their amazing texture. Be very careful not to overbake these brownies, otherwise they will end up being dry. It took mine exactly 23 minutes, and they were perfectly moist. I really hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
