Lemon Crunch Bars

Brighten up your February with our zesty, crumbly and totally delicious lemon crunch bars!

Ingredients:
For the filling:
  • Finely grated zest of 2 lemons, plus the juice (pressed through a sieve to remove 'bits')
  • 1 can (397g) Nestlé condensed milk

Follow these steps

  • Line a deep 28 x 18cm baking tin with baking parchment. Pre-heat the oven to 150degC
  • Melt both the sugars with the butter in a medium pan. Add the flour and mix well, followed by the shortbread crumbs. Place 2/3 of the crumb mix into the prepared tin and press down to form an even base layer.
  • Prepare the filling by placing the condensed milk in a mixing bowl - add the lemon zest and sieved juice and mix well. (The addition of lemon to condensed milk will cause it to thicken)
  • Pour the lemon mixture evenly over the prepared base. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mix over the top and use a fork to create an even, crumble finish.
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for around 35 minutes. Leave to cool completely before cutting into small bars.
