Step-by-Step

  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.

  5. When the brownies are cooled completely, make the glaze.

    Let the glaze set.
    Spread the remaining glaze over the bars and let it set.
  6. Cut into bars and serve.
