Meyer Lemon Blondie


I had some leftover Meyer lemons and was trying to figure out what to do with them hence this recipe….I didn’t want a heavy cake and thought why not a blondie. I forgot to add some baking powder/soda and was scared that it would be dense but it came out simply beautiful. Looked more like a lemon tart .This would be great with a cup of coffee, maybe accompanied with fresh raspberries, mint and some light whipped cream. I only had mint on hand but love the simplicity it adds. This is a keeper.
