Lemon Oat Bars
By the Ao4
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
2/3 cup cold butter
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
½ cup lemon juice
1 ½ tsp grated lemon peel (I don’t use any)
In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. (Mom pulses hers in the food processor instead. She says to make sure yours is big enough before trying; I say stand by in case it isn't!) Press 3 cups into a greased 9-inch square baking pan; set remaining mixture aside. Bake crust at 350° for 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the milk, lemon juice and lemon peel (if using). Pour over crust. Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until edges are brown. Cool on wire rack.
Mom thinks this tastes best COLD from the fridge!
Sorry I don't have any cool pictures like Zim did with the Empanadas. Maybe if any of our friends took pictures, they'll share. (Hint, hint!)
Mom says it's really fast and easy and oh, so good! Of course, I wouldn't know....
...I don't get to have Lemon Oat Bars. But I am in position, should any hit the floor.
Happy baking and remember to share with your friends!
