Creamy Lemon Oat Bars

After looking around on the web, I believe this recipe must go way back.  It pops up on many pages and with different variations, but it is a winner.  If you love lemon desserts, try these incredibly easy, but oh so wonderful lemon bars.

1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
Lemon zest from 1 lemon
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
1¼ cups flour
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened

Preheat oven to 375°.  Line 8″x8″ pan with enough foil so it has over-hang on each side, spray foil with non-stick spray.  Stir together sweetened condensed milk, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla.  In another bowl, mix flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt.  Mix cut in softened butter until distributed and crumbly.  Press half of crumb mixture into even layer on bottom of prepared pan.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Spread lemon mixture over crumb crust.  Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over lemon layer and press down slightly.  Return to oven and bake 20 minutes.  Cool completely, remove from pan using foil over-hang to cutting board.  Peel foil down from sides, cut into bars.
