TWO INGREDIENT LEMON BARS

September 23, 2012

This will probably come as a huge shock to exactly no one, but I love cooking. I was almost disappointed by how easy this recipe was. There is barely any cooking to be done. In fact, if you want to send a less-than-recipe-savvy man into the kitchen, he will probably be able to whip these up pretty handily on his own.

Oh, and in case you needed just ONE more reason to make these already fabulous treats, each lemon bar is only 168 calories.

TWO INGREDIENT LEMON BARS from Rachel SchultzTWO INGREDIENT LEMON BARS
Makes about 15 bars

1 box angel food cake mix (must be the one step, just-add-water kind)
22 ounces lemon pie filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix and pie filling together in a large mixing bowl. Pour batter into greased 9×13 baking dish.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly golden. Expect for these to be more of a cakey texture than other lemon bars. Top with powdered sugar, (but only if you do not have huge qualms with this recipe becoming a three ingredient endeavor.)

    I tried these, and found I needed to make a substitution, since I could not find lemon pie filling. I made a small package of instant lemon pudding, and then whisked in a whole jar of lemon curd. It was fantastic!
