  • 2 sticks butter - softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup strawberries - diced
  • 1/4 cup Lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Goodman's Lemon flavoring

Frosting Ingredients

  • 4 oz cream cheese

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

Blondie Directions

  • With your mixer blend the butter, sugar, and egg until light and fluffy.
  • In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder and salt, until well blended.
  • Add the flour mixture to the mixing bowl, a little at a time, mixing between additions.
  • Divide the batter in half and add strawberries to one half and the lemon flavoring and juice to the other half. Stir well.
  • Add a teaspoon of neon pink food coloring gel to the strawberry half and neon yellow food coloring gel to the lemon half.
  • Line an 8 X 8 dish with parchment paper and pour the strawberry batter into the dish and spread the batter out. Place the lemon batter on top of the strawberry batter and spread to smooth.
  • Place in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

Frosting Directions

  • Mix the cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the vanilla and neon pink food coloring gel, and mix until blended.
  • Add powdered sugar a little at a time, until all has been added and the frosting is smooth and creamy.
  • Spread frosting on top of the blondies and smooth to make a thick layer of frosting.
  • Allow the frosting to sit for 2 hours to set before serving.
  • Cut blondies in 2 X 3 inch pieces and enjoy!
