Lemon Bars

Oh my goodness – another scrumptious square.


  • 1-15 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. lemon extract
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup uncooked oatmeal (not instant)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix the milk, juice and extract and let stand while preparing the other ingredients.

Cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy and add the balance of the ingredients.  Layer one half of the mixture in the bottom of a 9 inch  pan and pat down.  Now stir the lemon mixture until blended and pour over the base.  Top with the rest of the oatmeal mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes and remove from oven to cool.  When completely cooled and you are ready to put on the trays (plates) cut into 2 inch squares.

You could change this for Cherry or Saskatoon pie filling.
