Lemon Bars

1 Cup (2 sticks) butter

1 cup sugar

2 cups flour

1 ¼ cups oatmeal (not instant)

Juice of 3 lemons

Zest of 2 lemons chopped fine

Zest of 1 orange chopped fine

1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk

Cream butter and sugar, then add the flour and oatmeal to make the dough (it will be a little crumbly). Set aside. Stir juice and zest into milk. Set aside. Butter a 9 by 13 inch pan. Press 2/3 to ¾ of the dough into pan. Spread lemon/milk mixture evenly over the top of the dough. Sprinkle the remaining dough (kind of like streusel) over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes until golden. When cool, slice into 1-inch squares.

These are some of the best and messiest lemon dessert bars I have ever had. They also improve with age.
