This is another delicious recipe from the Pioneer Woman. I have made these many times. They are simple to make and use ingredients you have laying around the house. Once again, I am not a photographer. It is especially hard to take pictures when you have a 2 year old assisting you in your baking.

CREAMY LEMON SQUARES
- 1-1/3 cups All-purpose Flour
- ½ t. salt
- 1 t. baking powder
- 1 stick (1/2 Cup) Butter, Slightly Softened
- 1 cup Brown Sugar (lightly Packed)
- 1 cup Oats
- 1 can (14 Ounce) Sweetened Condensed Milk
- ½ cup Lemon Juice
- Zest Of 1 Lemon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using your stand mixer with the paddle attachment mix butter and brown sugar until well combined. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Add oats and flour to butter/sugar mixture and mix to combine. Press half of crumb mixture into the bottom of an 8 x 11 inch pan.
Place remaining crumb mixture aside in another bowl. Wipe out your mixer bowl with a paper towel. Using the whisk attachment mix together condensed milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Spread onto the bottom layer of the crumb mixture.
Top with the other half of the crumb mixture, but don’t press. I use a spoon and sprinkle the remaining crumbs over the top and then gently smooth with the spoon. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow pan to sit on counter for 30 minutes after baking. Cut into squares and refrigerate for a couple of hours or until cool. Serve cool.
