Lemon Brownies

This recipe sounded interesting to me and thought I would give it a try. I found it on this link
The Girl Who Ate Everything.

They came out THIN but boy are they good!

3/4 C AP flour
3/4 C granulated sugar
1/4 Tsp. sea salt ( I used Koser salt)
1/2 C ( 1 stick) Unsalted Better, softened
2 large eggs
2 Tbl. Lemon Zest
2 Tbl. Lemon Juice

Tart Lemon Glaze

1 rounded cup powdered sugar
3 TBL.Lemon Juice
3 TSP. Lemon Zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter 8x8 baking dish and set aside.
Juice and zest 2-3 lemons,depending on their size and set aside.
Beat the flour,sugar,salt and softened butter until combined with your kitchen Aid or electric mixer
In another bowl, whisk the eggs, lemon zest and juice until combined. Pour into the flour mixture and beat at med. speed until smooth and creamy for about 2 min.
Pour into the baking dish and bake for 20-25 mins. or until just starting to turn golden around the edges and a toothpick comes out clean.Allow to cool completely before glazing. Do not over bake.
When the brownies are cooled, make the glaze. Sift the powdered sugar, add lemon zest and juice and whisk all three together. Spread the glaze over the brownies. Let glaze set. Since the weather was in the upper 90's  when I made these I popped them in the fridge.
Suppose to make 24 small brownies but I like to cut large ones.
