Lemon Mascarpone Blondies...and only 3 months later.

Moist...lemony...delicious!! I made these blondies a while back...back before the hiatus. Back when we made Mascarpone for Forging Fromage I didn't get around to using it in time to post it...but this was one of the things I ended up doing with it! Can you imagine that creamy, smoothness and how well it complimented the yellow tartness of that lemon zest? Oh man!

I remember originally seeing this recipe in a couple of places...I think originally at Simply Recipes but also Joanne's version at Eats Well with Others...and I remember thinking how great they sounded. Well, they definitely exceeded my expectations...they beckoned me from the pan...

Lemon Mascarpone Blondies
recipe by Vanilla Garlic found at Simply Recipes

2 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. baking soda

Yum. Now I want to make them again right now! And speaking of homemade cheese (I was. Speaking of homemade cheese. The mascarpone. Sort of in code, but...), we're making Halloumi over at Forging Fromage this month if you want to join us!
