Key Lime Crumb Bars

Serves: 1 dozen bars
Ingredients
  • 1⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, slightly softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar (lightly packed)
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup key lime juice
  • zest of 1 lime
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°.
  2. In a large bowl, mix butter and brown sugar together until well blended
  3. In a smaller bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  4. Add the oats into the butter mixture and stir well.
  5. Then add in the sifted flour mixture. Now stir until combined into a nice crumb.
  6. Lightly spray an 8x11 glass pan and press half of the crumb mixture into the bottom.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together the condensed milk, key lime juice and lemon zest.
  8. Spread this onto the crumb layer in your glass pan. Then use your hands to knead together the other half of the crumb mixture (to better incorporate the butter) and put it on top of the lime mixture. Do NOT press the crumb this time!
  9. Put in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes and golden brown.
  10. Remove from oven and let sit for 30 minutes to rest.
  11. Refrigerate for two-four hours. Cut into bars and serve.
