DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 13x9 pan and set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar. Slowly add flour until incorporated. Slowly add oats and blend until crumbly. Press 3/4 of mixture into the bottom of the pan to form bottom crust. Reserve remaining dough.
  • The juice of 3 lemons--the recipe I used wasn't more specific on the measurement so
  • if your lemons aren't very juicy please squeeze 1 or 2 more. Too little lemon juice just produces very very bland lemon bars.
  • Make sure the zest is finely grated or finely chopped. Blend condensed milk, zests and juice until smooth. Pour over crust and spread to the edges of the crust.
  • Crumble the reserved dough over the top.
  • Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes or until crust crumbles are lightly golden. Cool completely, at least 1 hour before cutting.
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • I wish I could tell you how long they keep but that has never come up since they disappear so quickly!
