When you bite into these little brownies it’s like a lemon exploded in your mouth. They are absolutely wonderful. Soft and chewy with a sweet glaze. And to me nothing says “summer” like lemon. I think that’s why I made these. I really want summer to officially be here that’s for sure. It’s like March was beautiful, April was rainy, May is windy…maybe better luck in June?
The hubby isn’t such a big fan of lemon, so he didn’t give his approval on these. I brought them in for the coworkers to try and they on the other hand loved them. I might have, just might have snuck the pan back into my office when there was one left so I could hoard the last one. True story.
So if you are looking for a yummy dessert to welcome in summer these are calling your name!
