1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cup oatmeal (not instant)
Juice of 3 lemons
Zest of 2 lemons, chopped fine
Zest of 1 orange, chopped fine
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350. Coat a 9 by 13" pan with cooking spray.

Cream butter and sugar, then add flour and oatmeal to make dough (it will be a little crumbly). Stir juice and zest into milk. Press two-thirds to three-quarters of dough into pan. Spread lemon/milk mixture evenly over top of dough. Sprinkle remaining dough over top.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden. When cool, slice into 1-inch squares
