Ingredients

Strawberry Lemon Blondies

  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 ¼ cups flour 306 grams
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup diced fresh strawberries
  • ½ cup white or dark chocolate chips

Strawberry Lemon Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar measured, then sifted
  • 1 tbsp strawberry puree 2-3 strawberries, pureed
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

White Chocolate Drizzle

  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips or candy melts melted

Instructions

Strawberry Lemon Blondies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Line 7 x 11 inch or 9 x 9 in pan with parchment paper
  • Mix together dry ingredients (minus sugar) in a bowl.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer or hand held mixer, cream the butter and sugar on medium for 2-3 minutes, until it is light and fluffy.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula and add the egg. Mix until incorporated. Then and lemon juice and continue mixing, pausing to scrape down the sides a few times. It might look curdled, this is normal.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and gently fold in diced strawberries and chocolate chips with a large spoon or rubber spatula. It might look a little pink but this fades when you bake it.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pan and spread it around, pushing towards the edges and making the top even.
  • For a 9x9 inch pan bake 30-35 minutes and for a 7x11 inch pan bake 35-40 minutes. Try not to overbake them. The edges will be brown and a toothpick will come out clean when you pierce the middle.
  • Let them cool on a cooling rack and make sure they are fully cooled before you add the glaze.

Strawberry Lemon Glaze

  • Puree 2-3 cut up strawberries in a food processor or blender.
  • Over a bowl, strain out the solid parts of the strawberry so just the liquid is left.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of the strawberry liquid, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1 cup of powdered sugar to a bowl and mix until thoroughly combined and a glaze forms.
  • If it looks too thick add a bit more lemon juice or strawberry puree. If it’s too thin add a bit more powdered sugar.
  • Pour the glaze over the blondies and quickly spread it evenly using a knife or spatula. Let the glaze set for a minute before adding the white chocolate drizzle.

White Chocolate Drizzle

  • Melt ¼ cup white chocolate chips or candy melts in the microwave for 10-15 seconds at a time, stirring in between each interval.
  • Put into a pastry bag or ziplock bag with the tip cut off
  • While still melted, drizzle the white chocolate over the Strawberry Lemon Blondies

Notes

  1. Make sure your butter and eggs are room temperature 
  2. Try not to over bake them. You want them to be dense and chewy. If you over bake them they can get dry. 
  3. Make sure the blondies are completely cool before you add the glaze. If they’re warm, the glaze will melt.
  4. If you don’t want to top with the powdered sugar glaze, try topping with lemon curd or lemon buttercream frosting, yum!
  5. I baked my blondies in a 7×11 inch pan which makes for a thicker dessert bar.  You can also bake them in a 9×9 inch pan which will give you slightly thinner blondies. 
  6. You can easily double the recipe and bake in a 9x 13 in pan. 
  7. These strawberry lemon blondies will last 2-3 days in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge.
