Lemon brownies AKA lemon blondies are super soft and moist bars topped with the most delicious glaze. The perfect refreshing dessert that you’ll be making over and over again!
These lemon brownies may be one of my favorite desserts ever! I love a rich and fudgy chocolate brownie or brown butter blondie, but there’s something about a lemon brownie that’s so light and fresh.
I have been loving ALL things lemon lately. There’s just something about citrus desserts that are so refreshing and delicious. And these lemon brownies did not disappoint!
They are moist and buttery, almost like sugar cookies, with just a hint of lemon. The powdered sugar glaze on top is tart and sweet, and makes a perfect compliment to the brownies without being overpowering.
I love how light they taste as well…not too rich or heavy. Trust me, they’ll be a hit!
