Lemon Oatmeal Bars with an oatmeal cookie crust and cheesecake filling made with sweetened condensed milk is a simple easy dessert recipe
1pkgOatmeal Cookie MixBetty Crocker
1canSweetened Condensed Milk
In a large mixing bowl add Oatmeal Cookie Mix and cut in cold butter.
Using a pastry cutter or forks, cut butter into mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs
Add egg to cookie mixture and combine. Mixture will be thick
Press about ⅔ of the mixture into the bottom of a well greased 8x8 or 9x9 inch pan or use parchment paper and Bake for 10-12 minutes
In a separate bowl combine Sweetened Condensed Milk, Lemon Juice, and Lemon Zest and mix together using a hand electric mixer until fully combined.
Pour mixture over baked cookie crust and spread evenly
Crumble remaining cookie mixture on top and bake for 22-25 minutes.
Lemon Bars are baked when edges turn golden brown and center is set.
Allow bars to fully cool before slicing
TIP: I like to use a cheese grater and grate cold butter. It's so much easier to cut butter into a mixture when it's in small easy pieces.
