Creamy Lemon Crumb Squares

When I made the Baked Beans for my work pot luck, everyone loved them so much that they asked me where I got the recipe. I started to explain about The Pioneer Woman cooking blog and how amazing all of her recipe's are (that I have tried). My manager's manager decided that we were going to have a Pioneer Woman day. What does this mean? We were all going to make something off of her cooking blog. We decided that everyone would choose whatever they wanted out of her appetizers and desserts.

This was such a good idea. I work with older married men, however most of these guys like to cook. It was a success. We had a bunch of yummy snacks that we got to eat all day. My co-workers are so awesome. This is what I decided to make. Simple and tasty.
