Were you good?
I hope so.
Because are definitely making these today, no matter what.
They are, hands down, the best lemon squares I've ever eaten.
I will never ever (pinky swear) make another lemon square recipe again.
Creamy Lemon Crumb Squares
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 stick butter, slightly softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 can (14 ounce) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
Zest of one lemon
Preheat your oven to 350*.
Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder and set aside.
Cream butter and brown sugar until well combined.
Add oats and flour mixture to butter and sugar mixture and mix until crumbs form.
Press half of the crumb mixture into the bottom of an 8 x 11 inch pan.
Mix together condensed milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Spread onto the bottom layer of the crumb mixture. Top with the other half of the crumb mixture, but don’t press.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
Allow pan to sit on counter for 30 minutes after baking. Cut into squares and refrigerate for a couple of hours or until cool. Enjoy!
