  • 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

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 in a bowl.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer or hand held mixer, cream 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
