Lemon Crumb Squares

Recipe and photo from What's Cookin?

1 ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1½ sticks of butter, slightly softened
1 cup brown sugar (lightly packed)
1 cup oats
1 can (14 ounce) sweetened condensed milk
½ cups 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. You can use a 9 x 13 pan; it will just be thinner.
Mix together condensed milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Spread onto the bottom layer of the crumb mixture. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture on top of lemon layer but don’t press. You want the top to be a thick crumbly texture, It should resemble the top of an "apple crisp".
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.

* I think these were a little too "lemony" for our time I would make with a little less lemon juice.

* Funny thing... these were better the 2nd day! Not sure why but everyone here agreed!
