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
1 egg
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.
