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.
White Chocolate Lemon Blondies.
They go together with just a few steps. Love a completely non-complicated dessert!
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.

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
We are definitely trying these in our kitchens ! looks delicious
