  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries diced (measure the 1 cup after dicing)


  • 1 tablespoon strawberry jelly (not jam)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Red or pink food coloring optional


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x9-inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving some sticking up from two sides to make it easier to lift the blondies out of the pan after baking.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg. Beat in the 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice. Be aware that the lemon juice might not fully incorporate.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix into the wet mixture until well combined. Gently fold in the fresh strawberries.
  • Scoop the blondie dough into the prepared baking dish and gently spread out evenly.
  • Bake the blondies at 350F for 30-35 minutes, just until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Do not over-bake. Let the blondies cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then lift out and cool completely to room temperature before cutting into bars.
  • In a small bowl, melt the strawberry jelly in the microwave in 15 second increments, just until melted. Add the 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 cup powdered sugar; whisk until smooth. If desired, add a drop or two of red or pink food coloring for brighter color. Drizzle the frosting over top of the cooled blondies.
