Pinterest Win: Lemonies

It is January. The glitter from New Year’s has faded, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is quickly becoming a memory, and all we have to look forward to is THE GRIND. Trust me, I feel the January blues. My way to counteract them is with a treat so sweet and summery, you can’t help but feel better after eating them.

Enter: The Lemon Brownies.

The name is somewhat of a oxymoron, so I prefer the name “lemonies”. Call them what you will, this recipe is a winter-winner.
