These White Chocolate Lemon Blondies are ridiculously amazing! So easy and delicious! My new favorite!

I am going to tell you that these bars are ridiculous. Honestly one of my new favorites…which is annoying because I feel like I have been saying that a lot lately…

Like if everything is a favorite then nothing’s a favorite, I mean right? You can’t favorite EVERYTHING!

But these really are. A favorite, I mean. Maybe my most favorite…I mean for today.

The unfortunate thing about these bars, though, is that no one else who resides in my home likes lemon baked stuff. But they DO, however like lemonade. And lemon candy. And, oh yeah, raw lemons.

Which basically makes no sense. Except here’s the even MORE annoying thing…I don’t like lemonade. Or lemon candy. Or even lemons, really. But baked goods with lemon?  BRANG IT!

So basically my family and I are all backwards lemon weirdos. Anyway.  These bars rocked my Sunday afternoon.

Just make your batter and add in some white chocolate…

Spread about half of it in a lined pan…

Then grab a whole jar of lemon curd.

Why oh why do they call it curd.  It’s annoying and gross sounding.

But it’s delicious.

Drop that by tablespoons all over…

The whole jar, guys.

Then smear the rest of the dough all over the top.

And give it a swirly.

Then bake it up. Let it cool completely before cutting into squares…or even removing it from the pan.

All that curd in there makes it loosey-goosey.  So be patient.

Then finally…yes!

  1. I know what you mean, I have a new favorite everyday. Cooking/baking everyday requires A LOT of favorites!

    These bars are insane! I love the white chocolate and the lemon together. That sounds like a dreamy combo!

  2. I’m fairly certain the.boy shares your kid’s taste buds…because he feels similarly about lemon desserts even though I’m passionate about them! But…who says I’d share these with him anyway. Yum. Happening.

    Sorry to sound so blonde but did you mean to say 1/2 C. sugar? I WASN’T SURE WHAT 1.2 SUGAR meant. Can’t wait to make them. I just wanted to verify how much sugar.

  4. Loving these!! I adore lemon curd and can’t even begin to imagine how good it must be in these blondies!

    Side note – I made your Nutella butter bars last week, but with Biscoff – they were AMAZING!! Everyone loved them 🙂

  5. White choco blondies are definitely the best–looks like you’ve still got some summer zest in you, which I love (autumn = too soon! Or I’m in denial). Thank you for sharing this–totally going into my to-do folder!

    I just made these bars but substituted lemon pie filling for lemon curd because I couldn’t find any lemon curd at the local store. They were good, but I’m sure they would have been better with the curd. :/

    Hi. I just want to ask, is there a substitute for lemon curd? Since its kinda hard to find that all the way here in PI.

    Thanks 😀

    Hi – I made these last night and they turned out just like your picture, and taste delicious! The curd is still fairly gooey, though – is that how they’re supposed to be? Yum yum!

    I made some raspberry curd and used it in the recipe. I am here to tell you that if the result were a person, I would have cheated on my husband with it. SO EFFIN GOOD.

    Baked this tonight, following all instructions exactly. I ended up with a pan of fairly goopy mess. It tasted fine but looked nothing like the picture. Overly “wet”. I think putting a whole jar of lemon curd in the recipe was far too much. When I did this, it covered entire dough layer rather than look like smaller spoonfuls as in the picture. I also baked them about 3-4 minutes longer than suggested. They have cooled completely and didn’t set up or appear as ones shown. A let down
