Delicious and easy-to-make Strawberry Brownies are a thick, chewy treat loaded with strawberry flavor!
Preheat the oven to 350° and have ready a greased brownie pan or a 9x13" baking dish.
Add the strawberries to a food processor fitted with a blade attachment (or a blender) and mix until completely pulverized into a powder. Measure out 1/3 cup, and discard of the rest or save for another use.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/3 cup freeze-dried strawberry powder, baking powder, and sea salt. Set aside until ready to use.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together melted butter, granulated sugar, egg, egg yolk, and extract until well combined. Add the milk and food coloring, and mix once more. Add the dry ingredients and mix with a sturdy spoon until the dough comes together. Do not overmix.
Transfer the batter to the baking dish and spread evenly from edge to edge. Bake for 20-24 minutes, just until the center is set. Cool in the pan at least 30 minutes before cutting.
If you are making the glaze, allow the Strawberry Brownies to cool completely. Then, add the cream cheese and sugar to a bowl. Using a handheld mixer (or a whisk), mix until well combined and homogenous. Pour over the brownies and spread across the top using an offset spatula or the back of a spoon. Cut, serve, and enjoy!
