WHITE CHIP LEMON STEUSEL BARS
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tsp freshly grated lemon peel
2 cups HERSHEY'S Premier White Chips, divided
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups regular rolled or quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup toasted pecan pieces
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp shortening
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 13x9-inch baking pan. Combine sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and lemon peel in medium bowl; set aside. Measure out 1/4 cup and 1/3 cup white chips; set aside. Add remaining white chips to lemon mixture.
Beat butter and brown sugar with electric mixer on medium speed in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, oats, pecans, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture, blending well. Set aside 1-2/3 cups oats mixture. Add egg to remaining oats mixture, blending until crumbly; press onto bottom of prepared pan. Gently spoon lemon mixture on top, spreading evenly. Add reserved 1/3 cup white chips to reserved oats mixture. Sprinkle over lemon layer, pressing down lightly.
Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool in pan on wire rack. Place remaining 1/4 cup white chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 30 seconds or until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Drizzle over baked bars. Allow drizzle to set; cut into bars.
