Creamy Lemon Crumb Squares

I know I have one thing in common with Christy from “The Girl who Ate Everything“… and based on my weekly post of trying to loose some extra pounds, I think you might have a good idea too. I found Christy thanks to Pinterest, stumbled across one of her recipes that caught my eye {and tummy} and couldn’t help but make it yesterday afternoon. 

So here she is, the squares that no longer exist in my house thanks to a sweet tooth and getting up 3 times in the night to pump. Their is nothing like a little Lemon Square to coax yourself to wake up and take care of business. 
Sorry for the lack of photo’s this time around but after seeing the image that Christy put on her Blog I didn’t want to prolong the wait for the lemon square to be in my belly. 


Creamy Lemon Crumb Squares

1 ⅓ cup Flour
½ tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 cup Butter {slightly softened}
1 cup Brown Sugar {lightly packed}
1 cup Oats
14 Ounces Sweetened Condensed Milk
½ Cup Lemon Juice
zest of 1 Lemon

* Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
* Mix butter and brown sugar until well combined.
* Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder.
* Add oats and flour to butter/sugar mixture and mix to combine.
* Press half of oat crumb mixture into the bottom of an 8 x 11 inch pan. Me…. I don’t listen to instructions well, so I used my 8 x 8 pan.
* Mix together condensed milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Spread onto the bottom layer of the crumb mixture. The other half of the crumb mixture mix spread, sprinkle onto of the 2 layers and DON’T press down. 
* 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.
* Serve cool. Makes around one dozen.
