Easy Lemon Bars Recipe

These Glazed Lemon Brownies are one of our favorite dessert recipes. I’ve been making them for years! They are my go-to recipe for potlucks and cookouts. The brownies are light and not overly sweet. The light lemon glaze on top puts these bars over the top. We could not stop eating them. I am making them again this weekend. I can’t stop thinking about them!

How to Make Glazed Lemon Browines

These brownies are super simple to make. Beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and mix well. Add lemon juice and lemon zest. Slowly add all-purpose flour and salt, mixing until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake. Let the brownies cool before adding the glaze. To make, combine powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Pour over cooled brownies and allow to set up before cutting into bars.

  • I highly suggest using fresh lemon juice in these brownies. I really think it makes a difference. You can use bottled juice, but, since you need lemon zest, why not just use fresh lemon juice.
  • How long do brownies last? Store cut brownie squares in an airtight container at room temperature; they’re best eaten within 1 to 2 days. The pan of uncut brownies wrapped in plastic will keep at room temperature for up to 4 days.
  • Can brownies be frozen? Yes! Bake the brownies and cool completely. Do NOT add the glaze. Wrap the unglazed brownies in plastic wrap and aluminum foil and freeze. When ready to eat, thaw and add the glaze before cutting into squares.

    1. I meant when you attempt to access the site from a pin on pinterest. Someone else reported the same issue on their Facebook page. Seems the problem has been fixed since then though.
