What’s Cookin’ Wednesday – Creamy Lemon Crumb Squares!

Hey guys! Amanda here, back again to bring you our first ever What’s Cookin’ Wednesday post on the AYD blog! Man I am enjoying this blogging thing, sure do miss it!

Well I had this recipe pinned to my Sweet Curiosity pinterest board for a while now, maybe close to a year? I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but with all the oatmeal we have stocked up in this house, I think it’s about time to try it when I break them out to make my oatmeal cookies! I am not a BIG fan of lemon, but in a cream/cake or anything yummy, I can handle it 🙂

they look delightful, right? Okay maybe they aren’t so festive, but I am not much of a summer baker because it’s just too darn hot to turn on the oven, so I find that these will be perfect for my fall/winter baking seasons LOL. You can find the FULL recipe with extra photos on The Pioneer Woman’s website (you know, that chick from The Food Network) So how about the recipe?! 🙂
