Lemon White Chocolate Brownies

Gosh these were good!  I ate two without even realizing it.  They are a fancier lemon bar with a more significant and tastier crust.  Highly recommend if you like lemon bars and besides, what else have you got to do?  (A little quarantine humor, a very little.)

brownie layer

1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) butter

6 ounces white chocolate, chopped or 6 ounces white chocolate chips work too

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

2 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

lemon layer

3 eggs

1 cup sugar

2/3 cup fresh lemon juice

zest of 1 lemon

1/4 cup flour

powdered sugar for dusting

1  Make the brownie layer, preheat oven to 350.  Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray.

2  Melt butter and white chocolate in a medium saucepan over medium low heat, stirring often, until smooth.  Remove from heat and stir in sugar, eggs, and vanilla.  Then stir in flour, salt and baking powder until smooth.  Spread batter in prepared pan.

3  Bake until brownies are lightly browned on top and softly set in middle, about 25 minutes.  Let cool 5 minutes.

4  Make the lemon layer, whisk eggs, sugar, lemon juice, zest, and flour in bowl until smooth.  Pour carefully over brownie layer.  Return to oven and bake until lemon layer is set, about 20 minutes.  Transfer to rack and let cool completely.

5  Dust with powdered sugar before cutting into bars.
