Lemon Squares

I came across a recipe today & thought of trying it because it looked yummy & not too much of a hard work. It turned out to be a super scrumptious little thing that my son loved. The original recipe source Life with the crust cut off calls its Lemon brownies… I am calling it Lemon squares just because they aren’t brown 🙂 Also, I skipped the lemon glaze & yet it was just awesome. But you can check this page for the glaze.

Lemon squares

All-purpose flour – 3/4 cup
Granulated sugar – 3/4 cup
Salt – to taste
Butter – 1/2 cup (1 stick) , softened
Eggs – 2 large
Lemon zest – 2 1/2 teaspoons
Lemon juice – 2 tablespoons
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp (Optional)

Step One
Preheat oven to 180°C. Slightly grease the baking dish (I used 9 inch cake tin) with butter or cooking spray. Zest and juice two small lemons.

Step Two
Whisk eggs, vanilla (if using), lemon juice and lemon zest in a bowl & keep it aside. Now, in an electric mixer beat the flour, sugar , salt & butter. This mixture looks crumbly. Add the egg & lemon mixture and beat at medium speed until you see a well combined smooth mixture.

Step Three
Pour into baking dish and bake for 25 minutes, or until 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.
