I saw this recipe recently come across my Facebook feed and knew I had to make them! What a delightful, summertime treat! I am not a huge fan of sweets, but this sounded delicious!
I recruited my older one and nephew while on a visit to see my family and they were my helpers in the kitchen. These brownies take awhile to cool and then for the glaze to set – so plan ahead! I had two very anxious boys ready to taste test!
They are so lemony and delicious – nothing better in this hot weather! Thanks to Cookies and Cups for the recipe!
