I have been on a personal mission for 2011 and that has been to cook my way through the world’s greatest blogger (in my eyes), it is www.thepioneerwoman.com.
This Lemon Crumb Squares was another fabulous recipe I took on and you need to try it, its easy and absolutely delicious!! Especially if you love lemon curd, it’s a must.
Cudos to The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond on another brilliantly devised recipe!
1 & 1/3 cup Plain Flour
½ tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
125g Butter – room temp
1 cup Oats
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
½ cup Lemon Juice
Zest of 1 Lemon
Using a lamington tin, press half of crumb mixture into the bottom of a greased and floured pan.
In a separate bowl mix together condensed milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest until it is a golden creamy delicious concoction. Spread on top of the bottom layer of the crumb mixture. Top with the other half of the crumb mixture, crumbling it over the creamy lemon (do not press this time).
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. Best served cold. If it lasts it will keep for 4-5 days in the fridge, but I bet it doesn’t last anywhere near that long!
