Lemon Crumb Squares
2 cans sweetened condensed milk2 tsp lemon zest (chopped or finely grated)1 cup lemon juice
Mix ingredients and set aside.
1 1/3 cups softened butter2 cups brown sugar3 cups sifted unbleached white flour2 tsp baking powder1 tsp salt2 cups oats
Cream the butter and sugar together. Combine dry ingredients and mix until crumbly. Spread 1/2 of crumb mixture in greased 9 x 13 pan. Pat gently. Spread with milk mixture then cover with the rest of crumb mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes.
Okay, so here's what I did wrong. The first time I made them I made the mistake of mixing the crumb mixture with an electric mixer. I know now it's not a great idea because it makes the topping very dry. The second time I made them I stirred the dry ingredients in with a wooden spoon and then used my hand to squeeze the crumb mixture making sure that all of the dry mixture was moist and crumbly.
There you go, all the info. you need (and then some).
