“This recipe comes from the Daily Mail's Leith's Recipe of the Day. I made some yesterday for our Brownie Pack's Tsunami fundraising event and they, along with my brownies (I used Recipe no 13729 - not my recipe! But a good one!) were sold out. Try them for something different. I did need more than the amount below of lemon juice for the glaze. The recipe says "10 minutes" prep time. I think they're talking about professionals. I'm "just" a housewife - it took me a while longer. But worth it.”
