Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 8

Ingredients

Blondies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 heaping cup fresh strawberries finely cored and diced

Strawberry Lemon Glaze

  • 1 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar spoon and measured then sifted (sift after measuring) *sifting is optional
  • 2 ½ tablespoons milk or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 3 tablespoons strawberry glaze approx 12 large strawberries

Instructions

Blondie Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  • Line a metal 9 X 9 inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg until combined.
  • Mix in the lemon juice until fully incorporated.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt until fully combined and free of clumps. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until no dry flour remains.
  • Gently fold in the diced strawberries using a spatula. Spread the mixture evenly into your pan; the dough is thick, so take your time. A large offset spatula works well for this, but any spatula you have will do the job.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, until the edges start to turn golden and the center is set. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out moist but not wet. Be careful not to over-bake, as this can cause the blondies to dry out. Let them cool on a rack.

Glaze Instructions

  • Prepare the glaze by trimming 12 strawberries and pureeing them in a food processor until smooth. Strain the puree through a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl to extract 3 tablespoons of strained puree.
  • Combine the sugar, lemon juice, milk and strawberry puree in a bowl, whisking until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Adjust the consistency as needed by adding a bit more sugar if it's too thin or more lemon juice if it's too thick.
  • Spread the glaze over the cooled blondies. Let the glaze set before slicing.

Easy Bruschetta Recipe

Toasted Bread with Bruschetta Toppings | cookingwithcassandra.com

One of the reasons why I enjoy summer (besides barbecues and sunshine) is because of all the produce that is in-season. Melon and berries often get the spotlight as summer fruits, but think about all the fresh tomatoes! This fruit (we aren’t going to debate on whether tomatoes are fruits or vegetables!) is perfect for one of my favorite appetizers: bruschetta.  Bruschetta — a traditional Italian antipasto — is essentially a tomato mixture on grilled bread slices and is great as an appetizer, snack, side dish or even on its own. They look fancy, but are so easy to make!  With...

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I was beyond words when I found out PF Chang’s was launching here in Canada. My husband and I are huge fans of Asian food, so we rushed to book a table there for dinner. Needless to say, we were impressed! Of all the amazing dishes we had, I knew I had to try and replicate PF Chang’s chicken lettuce wraps. Tender, juicy and just so full of flavor.   These chicken lettuce wraps are so versatile - they work really well as starters or as part of a main course, depending on how many people are at the table.  What I absolutely love about these delicious wraps is that they’re...

Refreshing Strawberry Margaritas

Strawberry & slice of lime Margarita | cookingwithcassandra.com

I am a huge margarita fan! Aside from wine, tequila is my go-to for my cocktail of choice. Recently, I shared my margarita pitcher recipe which is great for serving big crowds. While a classic margarita makes for a delicious cocktail, sometimes I like to switch it up, especially if I’m feeling particularly creative.  Today, I’m sharing a variation of the traditional recipe: a frozen strawberry margarita.  This homemade strawberry margarita recipe uses frozen strawberries, tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and honey. When blended together, the mixture turns a very pretty pink...
