Lemon Brownies

Okay, so I will admit it. Pinterest has been my new obsession. I got this recipe off of that site. For me, the jury is still out on this one. Don’t be mistaken though, this is nothing like a lemon square/bar. It is moist and really not too tart. I like that it is different, but I don’t know if its a keeper. My guests, husband and friends enjoyed it. I thought it was average and my teenage daughter who loves sweets just thought it was okay. I would love your opinion. Let me know.
