  • Pour cookie mix into a bowl and add butter. Mix together using a fork until crumbly. Add egg and mix until well blended. Press 1/2 of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan; reserve remaining mixture for the topping.

  • Bake crust in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine condensed milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a bowl and mix well; filling may thicken as it sits.

  • Remove crust from the oven; it will be puffy. Leave oven on. Let crust cool for 10 minutes.

  • Spread lemon filling over the crust in the pan. Top with reserved mixture by crumbling it over the filling.

  • Return pan to the hot oven and bake until lightly browned, about 30 minutes more.

  • Allow to cool completely, about 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before cutting into bars and serving.
