Lemon Cream Bars

Just in time for the unofficial start of summer next weekend. This is an easy summer dessert to make for barbeques and picnics that everyone will love. I thoroughly enjoy lemon bars so when I came across these I wanted to try this take on them. And also I love baking with condensed milk! I doubled the recipe for our Mother's Day Brunch to make a a few more and them a little thicker.

Adapted from


1 can condensed milk
½ cups lemon juice- about 2- 3 lemons
1-½ cup flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
⅔ cups butter, melted
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Squeeze the juice out of the lemons. Mix together the condensed milk and the lemon juice and set to the side. Mix dry ingredients and melted butter together. Press half the streusel mixture into a lightly greased 9 by 13 pan. Pour the lemon and milk mixture on top. Sprinkle the rest of the streusel on top. Bake for about 25 minutes and let cool before transferring into the refrigerator.

Enjoy K!
