  • 8 x 8 or 8 x 9 baking pan
  • parchment paper
  • Measuring cups & spoons 
  • Stand Mixer with paddle attachment (can also use a large mixing bowl & wooden spoon)
  • Whisk
  • Mixing bowl
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Plastic knife


  • ½ cup unsalted butter (one stick of butter), melted
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon zest
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate morsels


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 9 x 9 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a stand mixer, with the paddle attachment (or large mixing bowl with wooden spoon), add both sugars and butter to the mixer bowl, and cream. Add in the extracts, eggs, lemon juice, and zest and combine until fluffy.
  • In a bowl, whisk dry ingredients. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the stand mixer at low speed. Combine until flour streaks are gone. Turn off the mixer, and scrape down the sides of the bowl, and fold in half of the white chocolate chips. Add batter to the parchment-lined pan. Sprinkle remaing chocolate morsels on top.
  • Bake brownies for 20-25 minutes. The brownies will have a golden brown coloring, and feel firm to the touch. A toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies should come out free of batter.
  • Allow brownies to cool for 30 minutes before removing the parchment paper from the pan. Be sure to slice it with a plastic knife.
