Lemon Squares with Crumb Topping

Lemon Squares Recipe

This lemon squares recipe is a bit different from the usual lemon bars, which have a shortbread crust. Instead, this recipe features a graham cracker crust and a graham cracker streusel topping that just melts in your mouth. Serve with a tall glass of cold milk.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
  * 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  * 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  * 1/3 cup firmly-packed light brown sugar
  * 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  * 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  * 1/2 cup butter, melted
  * 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  * 1/2 cup lemon juice

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and butter until mixture is moist. Press half of this mixture into the prepared pan. Reserve the rest for the topping of these lemon squares.

3. Beat sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice together. Pour over crust.

4. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over lemon layer. Bake 25-28 minutes.

Makes 16 lemon squares.
