Tart and Tangy Limeys

Sea Sun

I got the idea to make these from the lemon brownie recipes here on JAP. I changed just the amounts of a few ingredients and used limes instead.

My kids called them "Limeys" instead of brownies, hence the name. One of them claims she likes them "better than regular brownies!"...

You could use juice concentrate, however I think recipe works so well because of the fresh lime juice and zest.

I prefer the glaze to be thin, though if you'd like it thicker, just add more powdered sugar. You could add a drop or two of green food coloring to the batter, but it's not necessary.
