Why Lemon Brownies?
Lemon Brownies seems like a strange name for these sunny yellow bars due to the word “brownie” which conjures up thoughts of decadent chocolate fudge brownies. However, in their defense, and in defense of the original recipe developer (who must have named them), I must admit that they should not be called simply Lemon Bars as this would lead to major confusion with the traditional recipe for the old beloved classic.
In the end, I believe the words “brownie” or “brownies” should stay as it is definitely fitting – especially considering the texture. Due to this, as mentioned above, I call these scrumptious lemon dessert bars Lemon Brownies.
Lemon Brownie Love
Texture, folks. We’re talkin’ brownie texture in this sublime (sublemon?) bar. I have to say, these are the most magical bars I have ever baked. Ever. I was amazed that this simple recipe, with so few ingredients, could impress me as much as it did. These lemony Lemon Brownies taste phenomenal and are just plain addicting!
What will be surprising to many bakers is how easily these Best Ever Lemon Brownies pull together. They are “easy peasy lemon squeezy” in the truest sense of the popular phrase. Honestly, the most time-consuming part is zesting and juicing the lemons. And the payoff for this “hard work” is huge. Talk about the ol’ “bang for the buck”! Everyone will think you spent much more time creating them. After sharing these babies, family and friends will love you more and complete strangers will become instant friends.
