Have you ever had the lemon squares from Fiber One? They are delicious, but also expensive in a house of lemon lovers. Then one day I discovered that Bulk Barn sells lemon chips and I decided I was going to try to replicate the lemon squares. After much googling and thinking I determined that a lemon blondie would be a close facsimile. After trying a hybrid of two recipes I found, and not being happy with the results, I decided to start from scratch and come up with my own recipe. Here it is. The only thing I am thinking of changing is maybe trying it with a little less butter next time.
1.5 cups of butter
4 cups white sugar
1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
zest and juice from 2 lemons
4 cups of flour
1 tsp. salt
2 cups of lemon chips or white chocolate chips
Cream together wet ingredients. Mix in dry ingredients until thoroughly combined then add lemon chips and stir through. Spread the batter over a large, parchment paper lined cookie sheet with sides. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean from the middle and the top of the blondie is a light golden colour. Allow to fully cool before cutting.
