This recipe has been circulating around the Internet as “Lemon Brownies”, but I think it deserves a more descriptive name. These treats are a delicacy and are more “dainty” than brownies. They have no chocolate, and are NOT as sweet as Lemon Bars, nor do they have the moist gooey texture of lemon bars. They do have aspects of many sweet treats, including pastries, petit fours, and pound cake. I think you will love the texture and the burst of citrus in these pretty little bars. Everywhere they go they receive accolades galore!
