Here's a really simple and 100% delicious recipe for a springtime treat that is just as lovely to look at as it is delicious to eat! Buttery, moist, and packed with lemon flavor.
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter; room temperature
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Zest from 1 lemon
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Additional lemon zest for garnish
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grease a 9”x9” baking pan. In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar and salt; add soft butter, cutting in with two forks or pastry blender. In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, juice from 1/2 lemon and zest from 1 lemon; stir into flour mixture. Fold in 1 cup of fresh raspberries, then pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until set; use a toothpick to check for doneness.
Remove from oven and cool on a rack. When brownies are cool prepare glaze by stirring together powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons lemon juice; drizzle over brownies and sprinkle with additional lemon zest and raspberries, if desired. If you don't like raspberries, try blueberries, instead!
