Lemon Brownies

I found something similar on Pinterest.  After making them (from that recipe), I have adapted it a little bit.  The flavor was delicious.  I can't wait to make them again!

you'll need about 2 lemons for this recipe

ingredients:
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup (2 sticks butter), soft

4 eggs
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. lemon zest (about 1 lemon)

glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
additional lemon zest

directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 350.  Prepare a 9x13" baking dish with non-stick/flour baking spray. 

2.  In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.  Mix in butter.

3.  In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together eggs, lemon juice and zest.  Pour wet ingredients into the large dry ingredients and combine well.

4.  Pour batter into prepared baking dish.  Bake for 30-40 minutes or until center is set.  Let cool.

5.  Prepare glaze by combining all ingredients.  Once the brownies are cooled (or slightly still warm), spread glaze over the brownies.  Cut and enjoy!
