Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugars, beating until well blended. Add egg, beating until blended. Reduce speed to low; gradually add flour mixture, beating just until blended. Add molasses and milk, beating just until blended. Spread batter in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch pan.
Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Spread with Lemon-Cream Cheese Frosting. Cut into squares. Garnish with grated lemon rind, if desired. Cut each bar in half, forming 2 triangles if desired.
Note: Frosted bars may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator 5 to 7 days. If you decide to freeze these bars, do not frost them before freezing. Add the frosting to partially thawed bars, and then cut into shapes.

The gingerbread is excellent, but the frosting was not firm enough. Too gooey to put on a Christmas cookie tray or any other tray with other cookies. It's more like a gingerbread dessert. The frosting is fast, but too much, which makes it a bit too sweet for my taste.
Super yummy - a nice twist on gingerbread with lemon sauce, one of my all-time favorites. The only adjustment I would make is to use about half the frosting. All of it tastes great, but it's definitely more than you need.
