Yield: 2 dozen bars

Prep Time: 20 min

Cook Time: 20 min

Nice dessert for a summer picnic...

Ingredients:

1 (15 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 cup oats

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In small bowl, mix milk, juice and lemon rind. Set aside.

2. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, cream butter and blend in sugar. Add oats and flour mixture and mix until crumbly. Spread half of the mixture in 9x12-inch greased baking pan. Pat the mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan. Spread liquid mixture over the top and cover with the remaining crumb mixture.

3. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until edges are browned. Cool in pan at room temperature for 15 minutes.

4. Cut into 2-inch squares and chill in pan until firm. Remove squares from pan when firm.

Tips:

*If you try to remove the squares from the pan too early, they will fall apart.

    This sounds like just the remedy for my annual Spring lemon dessert searchings…Is it possible to put the entire crumb mixture on the bottom of the cake…or better with the lemon cream covered and not exposed?…I am fearful my family will not be “open” to a non-”lemon square-type” bar…but I would like to “branch” out…Do you have a photo of this?..Love your blog and your creativity so generously shared!
