Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 lemon zest about ½ teaspoon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup strawberries diced

Glaze

  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 to 2 drops red food coloring

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13 glass baking dish with parchment paper and set it aside.
  • Cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add in eggs, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla extract, and lemon extract. Beat on medium-high for 3 to 4 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally. The mixture may look a bit separated but should beat into a light, fluffy mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cornstarch.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix just until combined.
  • Beat in diced strawberries, just until combined.
  • Spread the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake blondies for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Whisk together glaze ingredients until smooth.
  • Spread over the warm blondies.
  • Allow blondies to cool completely before cutting into squares.
