No Debbie Harry - Just Blondies


I am on a roll with baked goods with lemon icing - but you can never get enough of a good thing! This time, I made Smitten Kitten's blondies , which I spied first at Jessy and Her Dog Winnie. I didn't mess with the recipe - I wanted to try the original first.

I topped these chewy, luscious treats with lemon icing and coconut, which in my mind was perfection. These are another great idea for morning or afternoon tea - or just for the heck of it!

Next time, I think fruit and nuts would be great in these - I'd absolutely make them again. Best of all, they were a cinch to make and can be made quickly with store cupboard ingredients. Perfect!

Wow! Blondies with lemon sounds delicious. I crave lemon sometimes, you know? Nuts would be good, I agree.

Thanks Giz - Smitten Kitten is da bomb.

I'm with you Swati - these were good.

Thanks Margaret - the plate was an accidental find.

Em, I am with ypu - when you are satiated by sweet stuff, lemon can cut through it all.

Hi Aparna - she would like this recipe then - it is good.

Agreed Rachel.

Thanks Crusader - you may even be won over by these because you can skip the lemon (Jessy used chcocolate topping).

Thanks Ivy - I appreciate it!
