Lemon Cream Oatmeal Slice

This is a crunchy and at the same time a very moreish slice.  The use of oats gives the crunch, while the simple subtle lemon cream used as a filling gives the fudgy texture to the overall slice.  This recipe is certainly a keeper! 125g unsalted butter, softened 1 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract…
