recipe wednesday: lemon oatmeal cakes

husband and i were invited to a friends house for easter dinner. i wanted to bring a dessert, but knew that enough chocolate would be consumed {at least by my husband}, so i wanted to make something a bit more refreshing. 

i found this delicious looking recipe on pinterest {originally found here}, and decided it was easy enough to recreate. other than the butter, it isn't too bad for you. mine made 12 individual servings. i decided to use a cupcake pan instead of making them into bars and it worked great! this would also be great with a mini cupcake pan for smaller servings. 

what you need:
oatmeal cookie mix {i used betty crocker ®}
1 can condensed milk
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
2 tsp lemon zest
juice of about 2 lemons

step by step:
1. cut cold butter into the cookie mix with a fork {just cut into small pieces and mash with fork until crumbled}
2. crack the egg into mixture and stir 
3. press half the mixture into cupcake pan sprayed with cooking oil
4. bake for 15 minutes at 350 F {180 C}
5. mix condensed milk with lemon juice and lemon zest until blended well
6. pour the lemon mix evenly onto the baked cookie mixture
7. crumble the remaining cookie mix on top
8. bake for another 20-25 minutes and let cool for at least 30 mins before serving {it stores well in the fridge for up to a week}

love, kbn
