Oh my goodness...those fresh blueberries! Who can resist them?
 Easter Day will once again remind us of our blessings. A time for renewal and hope for the world. Each day seems to get a little warmer and new life is revealed by tiny bird's nests, little brown bunnies hopping through the flowerbeds and the trees showing more of their blooms. The family will gather after church service for the mouth-watering Easter dinner. This year, our dinner will consist of baked ham with brown sugar mustard glaze, fresh green beans and new potatoes, deviled eggs, the fresh fruit salad, rosemary yeast rolls and oh boy...our grand finale will be these Lemon Blueberry Brownies. Now lovies, if you want to impress your family with something divine....please try this recipe! It is now number one on my list to take to potlucks and parties!  
 Lemon Berry Brownies with White Chocolate Glaze
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
2 large egg yolks
3/4 cup granulated sugar
6 T. butter, room temp.
1/4 cup sour cream
2 T. lemon juice
2 t. lemon zest 
1/2 t. vanilla extract
3/4 cup fresh blueberries
    White Chocolate Glaze
    1/2 cup white chocolate chips
    1 1/2 T. half-n-half
Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Melt the chips and milk on very low heat in a small saucepan, stirring gently until melted and smooth!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt, set aside. In a large mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat egg and egg yolks on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in sugar, butter, sour cream, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla, mix until well blended. Fold in the dry ingredients and mix just until blended. Fold in blueberries. Pour mixture into a buttered 8" x 8" baking dish and spread into an even layer. Bake 30 minutes.  Allow  brownies to cool completely, then pour White Chocolate Glaze over top.
