  • 1 cup (2 sticks or 228 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (164 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup (55 grams) fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 1/4 cups (306 grams) all-purpose flour (use the fluff/scoop/level method for measuring)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (127 grams) diced fresh strawberries


  • 1 cup (112 grams) unsifted weight powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 Tbsp strawberry puree (you’ll need about 2 large strawberries, instructions below)
  • Lemon juice (about 1 Tbsp, or just enough to thin the glaze to a spreadable consistency)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving long edges for easy lifting later.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg.
  3. Once the egg is fully incorporated, beat in the lemon juice. Note that the lemon juice may not completely incorporate at this point; that’s okay.
  4. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients, mixing until no more dry flour is present.
  5. Gently fold in the diced strawberries. Spread the mixture into your prepared pan, ensuring an even layer. The dough is thick, so take your time.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, just until starting to turn golden around the edges and the center is set. A toothpick inserted in the center will be moist but not wet. Avoid over-baking to prevent drying out. Let cool on a rack.
  7. Trim the strawberries for the glaze and puree in a small food processor. Strain the puree through a small strainer to get 1 Tbsp of puree.
  8. Whisk together the sugar, puree, and lemon juice until no lumps remain. Adjust consistency with more sugar or lemon juice as needed.
  9. Spread the glaze over the cooled blondies and let it set before slicing.

Conclusion: Enjoy the harmonious blend of strawberries and lemon in these delectable blondies. The moist, flavorful bites, complemented by the sweet strawberry lemon glaze, make these treats a delightful addition to any dessert table. Slice, savor, and share the joy of Strawberry Blondies!
