Directions

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease/Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with butter/cooking spray and set aside.
2
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the flour, sugar, salt and softened butter until combined.
3
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest and lemon juice until combined. Pour into the flour mixture and beat at medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
4
Pour into baking dish and bake for 23-25 minutes or until it is just starting to turn golden around the edges and a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean.
Allow to cool completely before glazing.
Do not over-bake or the bars will be dry.
5
When the brownies are cooled completely, make the glaze.
Sift the powdered sugar, add lemon zest and lemon juice and whisk together all three ingredients. Spread 1/2 the glaze over the brownies with a rubber spatula.
Let the glaze set.
Spread the remaining glaze over the bars and let it set.
6
Cut into bars and serve.
