Berry Lemonies

Berry Good Lemonies

Hey friends! I’m sharing the recipe for these super sweet squares today and they are berry berry good. This crowd pleaser is based off my regular Lemony Lemonies recipe and I think you’ll love it. They’re like brownies, but totally lemony.

Lemon and Blueberries

They are packed with lemon flavor and dotted with fresh blueberries throughout. And when I say packed, I mean you better pucker up because these are for all my lemon lovers out there.

Berry Lemonies Ingredients

Now, let’s grab our ingredients and get baking.

Berry Lemonies

Done. Just kidding. But dang, these look so good. I can taste them through the screen.

Lemon Zest

Fresh lemons and lemon zest are key to sweet success when baking these. I used a grater for zesting this time and I don’t think I will ever go back. So much easier than a regular zester. And the best part about making them is that you don’t even need a mixer. Just stir all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and you are good to go.

Mixing Lemonies Batter

Semi-melted butter, flour, salt, baking powder, eggs, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and zest. Mix it all until just combined.

Berry Lemonies Batter

Stir the blueberries in at then end. I like to dust them in a little flour to help them from sinking in the batter.

Lemonies Batter

Pour everything in a prepared 8 X 8 inch pan. Grease the pan, line with parchment paper and then grease and flour the paper. This way you can lift everything easily out from the pan. I will do this when I need to take photos, but if my game plan is devouring them, then I’ll just grease and flour the pan. Glass baking dishes are my go-to for squares, bars and brownies. But only if they come with a lid.

Lemon icing

After the lemonies are baked and cooled. Pour the lemon icing on top in a thin layer and let it set. Then cut them into squares.

Look at that lusciousness. Obviously I could not wait. My icing is a little melty. But it was totally worth it.
