I am calling them Crumbly Wumbly Bars but the real name is lemon-oatmeal bars from Gooseberry Patch, Family Favorite Recipes pg. 266 I saw the book over at my friend Patti's house and photocopied the recipe because it sounded good. I am a sucker for lemon! You could say it really puckers me up. hehe
1 cup butter, softened 1 cup sugar 2 cups flour 1 & 1/4 cups oatmeal (It calls for long-cooking oats... but I just used my quick cook oatmeal) zest & juice of 1 orange zest & juice of 2 lemons 1 - 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
Beat butter & sugar until creamy. Stir in flour and oatmeal. Press 3/4 of the crumbly mix into the box of a 9x13" pan, sprayed w/ PAM. Combine zest, juice & milk Drizzle and spread all over crumble mixture. Then top w/ remaining crumbles. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
A few weeks ago Gooseberry Patch on Facebook posted a note with the recipe for these cookies. They sounded yummy. I made them tonight. I thought the cookies were good but the frosting - OMG!!!! YUMMY!!!! I want to save this frosting recipe and slather it all over a pan of cinnamon rolls. If you like Maple Bars (donuts) then you will LOVE these cookies. :-)
