This is a perfect dessert when you're super busy but you want something really tasty. Think lemon pie with graham cracker crust in bar form that you can make in less than 15 minutes. I don't even like lemon and I really liked these bars. Plus, I think you could substitute key lime juice for the lemon juice and have key lime graham cracker bars. That sounds amazing...I'm off to try the variation!

Print this recipe
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup butter melted
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix together the milk and lemon juice.
In a large bowl, combine together the graham cracker crumbs, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the melted butter and stir until the mixture is wet and crumbly.
Press half of the graham cracker mixture into a greased 9x9 pan. Pour the lemon mixture over the crust, and scatter the remaining crumbs on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned. Cool before slicing. Store in fridge.
