Great recipe - this looks so delicious! Thanks :>) I loathe making crusts but this one looks do-able.

yup. it's like pretty much any recipe, first time through there's all the fretting and fussing.... coupla' whirls and it's quick&easy. worst part is dragging out the food processor (for me, anyway - not a big FP type here....)

I still haven't figured out which food processor to buy!

I would chop the nuts in small batches using my blender and then make the pasty using my old hand held pastry blender.

I keep both of my FPs on the counter. I use them too often to keep them out of sight. Along with my KA.

I have a very old wire kind that I got at a yard sale. All the paint was worn from the handle and the wood is dark with sweat. Sometimes it is easier to use that than dirty up the FP.

Also, that is WAY too much glaze for the 9x9 pan. I'd do half next time.
Ohh Kayyyyy now!! Most everybody knows I hate to bake but when I read all your posts about these LEMON BROWNIES I had to give them a try. To me, the only thing wrong with Brownies is they're chocolate and I far prefer lemon to chocolate. I used 1tsp. of baking powder but I don't know how much good it did, as after I added it I looked at the date and it expired 3 years ago. See...I warned you. The directions were annoying..

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease an 88 inch baking dish with butter and set aside.
  3. Zest and juice two lemons and set aside.
  4. In the bowl of an electric mixture fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the flour, sugar, salt, and softened butter until combined. I don't have a mixer with a paddle.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined. I did that in the measuring cup where I had already melted the butter. Why dirty another bowl?
  6. Pour it into the flour mixture and beat for 2 mins at medium speed until smooth and creamy. I beat it by hand for a while with a rubber spatula and called it "smooth and creamy" enough.
  7. Pour into baking dish and bake for 23-25 mins, should turn golden around the edges. I actually remembered to set the timer.
  8. Allow to cool completely before glazing. Do not overbake, or the bars will dry.
  9. Filter the powdered sugar and whisk with lemon zest and juice.
  10. Spread the glaze over the brownies with a rubber spatula and let glaze set.
Low and behold they are delicious. If I can do it, anybody can!!
Where's Dawg??

Kayelle, you bake just like I do! Once a year, whether we like it or not! "Smooth and creamy enough".

The notations are perfect!

Downton Abbey Lemon Tart

Downton Abbey Lemon Tart

On my list to try (but I just might use limes...). If anyone <wink, wink, nudge, nudge Alix) tries this, feedback would be great.

Why do you keep torturing me with these lemon goodies? I thought we were friends!

lemon, lemons, recipe

Calling all lemon lovers! This recipe got added to my "must try this" list today: [URL="http://www.bestyummyrecipes.com/lemony-lemon-brownies/"]Lemony Lemon Brownies Food Recipes[/URL] I found a link for lemon fudge and a copycat of the Olive Garden's lemon cake. I posted the links in the lemon lovers thread. The fudge sounds yummy! 3 stars 1 reviews
