    Saguaro's Note:

    These are like a lemon version of brownies. From the The Baking Sheet published by King Arthur flour. I haven't tried making these using the optional nuts.

      OUTSTANDING LEMON BARS! I did use a rounded measure of zest & also included a rounded teaspoon of it in the glaze, so these were pucker-ful of lemony flavor! Also used toasted almonds for the nuts! Definitely a keeper for me! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]

      It really is like a lemon brownie! It's a nice chewy, lemony cake that isn't difficult to make. Make sure that you spread the batter into the corners of the tin because it won't spread much by itself while cooking. Update: I made this again using chopped glace ginger instead of the nuts and it was good!
