“I have never been a huge fan of lemon….until now. These are always a favorite at the never ending potluck going on in the emergency room I work in. I have been wanting to post these for the last year. I hope you enjoy them too.”

Ingredients

Brownies:

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup white sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

3 eggs

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon lemon zest, plus more for icing

Icing:

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whisk eggs, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon lemon zest together in a separate bowl; mix into flour mixture and beat on medium speed until smooth, about 3 minutes.
