Press mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish and 1 inch up the sides of.

Bake until lightly browned, 8 to 12 minutes. Cool crust for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the filling. In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and condensed milk.

Add lemon juice; whisk until smooth. Pour filling into cooled crust; carefully spread out to the edges.

Bake until set, about 15 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack then chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.

With a serrated knife, cut into 16 squares, wiping the knife with a damp kitchen towel between each cut.
