Lemon Crumb Bars
I brought these to girls' night in, and they were a HUGE hit! The saltines give them the perfect bite of saltiness (kine of like salted caramel). Be careful because it's really hard to stop at one!
1 box lemon cake mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, softened
2 cups finely crushed saltine crackers (1/4 lb., which is 1 sleeve)
1/2 cup lemon juice
3 egg yolks
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, beat cake mix, butter and 1 egg with mixer until crumbly. Stir in saltine crumbs. Reserving 2 cups crumb mixture, press remaining crumbs on bottom of greased 13x9 inch baking dish. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden. With mixer or wire whisk, beat 3 egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice. Spread over prepared crust. Top with reserved crumb mixture. Bake 25 minutes or until set and top is golden. Cool. Refrigerate within 2 hours. Cut into bars.
