What a fab recipe! My niece is always the first to grab one when these are on the kitchen table. Needless to say, it’s a hit


1 can (14 ounces) of sweetened condensed milk

2 egg yolks

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

For the crust:

1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup sugar

4 tablespoons melted and cooled butter


Set your oven to preheat at 350°F (175°C). Prep an 8×8-inch baking dish by either greasing with butter or lining with parchment paper.

Mix together the crust’s components – the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, and sugar, until you achieve a texture akin to wet sand.

Evenly and firmly press this mixture onto the baking dish’s base. Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until it turns a light golden brown. Allow it to cool for half an hour.

For the filling, whisk the egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk together in a separate bowl until thoroughly mixed.

As you stir, slowly add the fresh lemon juice to this mix, ensuring it turns smooth and luscious.

Pour this lemony concoction over the pre-baked crust, ensuring an even spread.

Bake for another 15 minutes or until firm. Post baking, allow it to cool and settle for a minimum of 1 hour.

If you’ve used parchment paper, lift the lemon squares out, then slice them into desired portions.

Relish the velvety tartness of these Creamy Lemon Squares! Any remaining pieces can be refrigerated for future indulgence.

This dessert stands out as a classic embodiment of harmonized flavors. Its delightful juxtaposition of creamy lemon against a crisp crust will certainly win hearts, making the Creamy Lemon Squares a cherished recipe in your culinary repertoire.
