Sweet Pea's Kitchen, I was excited to try them. I also love oatmeal cookies/bars so this was a perfect combo for me.
They are delicious! Chewy and rich with a strong lemon flavor. Super easy to make too.
Lemon Cream Bars
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
1/2 cup lemon juice
1-1/2 cups flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
1-1/2 tsp lemon zest
2/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350- F. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9-by-13-inch pan. Line the pan with parchment paper, using enough to go over the sides. Butter the parchment.
In a medium bowl, combine the condensed milk and lemon juice; set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt lemon zest and butter. Mix until crumbly.
Press half of the oatmeal mixture into the prepared pan.
Spread the lemon filling evenly on top of the crust. Sprinkle the reserved oatmeal mixture evenly on top of the filling.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Cool completely. Lift out of the pan and remove the parchment. Cut into bars.

Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.
I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.
These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.
I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!
