Lemon Oreo Cake Bars

Oreos have been expanding into all kinds of different and creative flavors.      When I was at "the" Walmart (since there's only one here on Maui it gets a title.....just like Costco is the Costco), I saw Lemon Oreos.    It reminded me of the Girl Scout lemon creme cookies - and those are hard to find.  

Naturally, I added them to my cart.    And then I had to have a plan.    Because eating Oreos out of the package is not a plan (at least to me....but it could be).

Know what else is a premium on Maui?   Lemon cake mix.   I found one box and it was not on sale.    But the end result were delicious lemon cake bars, so I was happy.   And so were my friends.

What You Need

1 box of lemon cake mix
1 stick butter/margarine (I used margarine), softened
1 egg
10 lemon oreos, broken by hand into pieces
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 lemon juice

What You Do

Preheat your oven to 350.   Line a 13x9 pan with foil coated with cooking spray, or spray your pan directly.     In a large mixing bowl combine the cake mix, margarine, and egg until mixed into a dough.   Add oreo pieces and incorporate into the batter.    Press the dough into the bottom of the 13x9 pan.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the can of sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice and stir until smooth.    Pour over the dough in the pan.

Bake for 23-27 minutes.    Allow to cool and then cut into bars.

Meanwhile in Maui
Last weekend, I went on the Bamboo Forest hike.  Gotta love hiking waterfalls!
