Lactose-free Lemonies

Lactose-free Lemonies

I have a friend who’s called me Lemonie for years and I happen to LOVE lemon – so on this first day of spring, I thought I should bake a batch of these up.
Lemon makes the perfect choice on hot sunny days. It’s a great bake sale treat. And, these are the perfect alternate to chocolate desserts for those strange people who don’t like chocolate sweets. (Or for people who like to have a little sweet and a little tart one after another.

Like lemon pie, squared

Much easier to make than a lemon pie, these squares whip up in no time. And there’s no finicky crust to deal with. The biggest problem that you can’t keep them around. Or maybe it’s just me. I had an unfortunate evening eating the whole pan. Myself. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

2 eggs

1/2C icing sugar

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix the softened lactose-free butter into the dry ingredients (flour, sugar and salt).
In another bowl, whisk the lemon juice, lemon zest and eggs together until foamy.
Add the lemon and egg mixture to the larger bowl of dry ingredients (flour, sugar and salt)  and mix well.
Pour into a greased 8X8 brownie pan.

Remove from the pan and let cool.

Drizzle the glaze over the top.


I usually line the pan with parchment paper.
