Lemon Squares


  • 1 (14 oz.) can 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 salt
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine,melted

In a bowl, combine the milk and lemon juice; mix well and set aside. In another bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in butter until crumbly.

Press half of the crumb mixture into a greased 9-inch square baking dish. Pour lemon mixture over crust; sprinkle with remaining crumbs. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. (03/28/2008)

Can you make lime squares with the same recipe?


Editor's Note: I don't see why you couldn't. Just replace the lemon juice with lime juice. (03/28/2008)

Lemon Squares Recipe

This recipe uses flour instead of the graham cracker crust, but it is SO good.

  • 2 cups all Purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp finely shredded lemon peel (set aside)
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together the 2 cups flour and the 1/2 cup sifted powered sugar. Using a pastry blender cut in butter until mixture clings together. Press onto the bottom of an ungreased 13 x 9 x 2 inch-baking pan. Bake about 30 minutes or until lightly browned.


2. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with a whisk; whisk in granulated sugar and lemon juice until well mixed. Whisk in the 1/4 cup flour and the lemon peel. Pour over baked crust.

3. Bake about 20 minutes more or until edges begin to brown and center is set. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Sift additional powdered sugar over top. Cut into bars or into diamonds. Store, covered, in refrigerator. Makes 30 bars.
