Another great recipe I found on pinterest.  The contributor credited Pioneer Woman with the original recipe.

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter slightly softened

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup oats

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup of lemon juice

zest of 1 lemon

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Mix butter and brown sugar

2. Sift together flour, salt and baking powder

3. Add flour mixture, then oats, to butter and sugar mixture

4. Press half of this mixture into bottom of an 8 X 11 pan.

5. Mix together condensed milk, lemon juice and lemon zest

6.  Spread this over the cookie layer

7.  Crumble the remaining cookie layer on to the top of the milk/lemon juice mixture.  Do not press–should be crumbly

    I haven’t been able to be on your site much lately because of laptop problems, so hate to start in with this type of comment…but…This recipe looks delicious and I love lemon bars, but as I read through the recipe I noticed it said to add the oats after the flour. I can not find where the amount of oats is listed. Am I blind or is it really missing?
    Thanks, Virgie
