Oatmeal Lemon Squares

I am a sucker when it comes to lemon...I love it (guess you might have already guessed that). These bars are SOOOOO good and were gobbled right up before I got to hide some away for later. They are rich and sort of taste like cheesecake. They have quickly become a favorite at our house (but what treat hasn't).

Oatmeal Lemon Squares
1 1/2 c. + 2 T flour
3/4 t. salt
1 1/2 t. baking powder
3/4 c. butter
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 and 1/2 can's (that is CAN'S not cups) sweetened condensed milk
3/4 c. lemon juice
1 T. lemon zest

Combine butter and sugar and beat until fluffy. Add dry ingredient and oatmeal to butter mixture. Beat on low until all ingredient is combined. Divide the mixture in 1/2 and set aside 1/2 of the mixture. Press the other 1/2 of mixture into the bottom of a 9x13" pan. Set aside. Mix milk, lemon juice and lemon zest. Spread over crust in the 9x13" pan. Sprinkle the other 1/2 of crumb mixture over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 23 minutes or until golden brown. Let the bars cool for 30 minutes then refrigerate for 2 hours or more. Cut into squares and serve.
