Yummy Recipe Monday: Lemon Brownies
"I have never been a huge fan of lemon....until now. These are always a favorite at the never ending potluck going on in the emergency room I work in. I have been wanting to post these for the last year. I hope you enjoy them too."
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest, plus more for icing
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
