Creamy Lemon Squares

Happy New Year's Eve! Hope you all have big, fun plans for this evening. My family will get together for food and fun for just about any occasion. Tonight will be no different! Anytime we have a get together and I am looking to make something new, the first place I look is to The Pioneer Woman. Either her website or her cookbook . I got this recipe off of her website. Much like pretty much everything I have made of hers, it involves a little time and effort but it is always well worth it. Here is what you will need:

*Cream together 1 stick of softened butter and 1 cup packed brown sugar

*Add in 1.5 cups flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking powder, and 1 cup oats

*Mix by hand until everything is well incorporated

*Press half of crumb mixture into a 9x13 pan

*For the filling you will need 1/2 c fresh lemon juice and the zest of 1 lemon

*Mix the lemon with 1 can sweetened condensed milk until smooth

*Spread the lemon mixture over the pressed crumb mixture

*Top with remaining crumbs
*Bake at 350 for 25 minutes
*Cool for 30 min and then cut into squares
*Keep refrigerated until ready to serve!
