Easy Lemon Bars #recipe

Easy Lemon Bars

Oh lemon bars, let me count the ways I love thee. Seriously, if it’s baked and has lemon, I’m bound to love it. There are some store-bought lemon cookies that are like my kryptonite. I could eat the entire package because they are so soft and so lemony. Is lemony a word? Well, it is now! So when Krista from Everyday Mom’s Meals told me about her Easy Lemon Bars inspired by The Country Cook, I was hooked.

Why was I hooked? Two words. Easy. Lemon. Those two words were all it took for me to be interested. A quick look over the ingredient list (only 3 ingredients?) and I was ready to jump on board! Anything with a short ingredient list and cake mix as one of the ingredients is my kind of recipe.

I’m the semi-homemade type, so I love taking products I can buy in the store that need little prep and whipping up something delicious for my family. I also love learning about new ways to use cake mix! I have come to find out that there are tons of different ways to use it without actually making a cake!

So, with a box of cake mix, a can of pie filling, and some butter. you can make easy lemon bars to wow your family!

What you need:

  • 1 (21 oz) can lemon pie filling
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick butter, softened

What you do:

  1. Heat oven to 350.
  2. Grease a 9×13 pan well.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine the box of dry cake mix and butter. Using a spoon and your fingers, mix well until crumbly mixture forms.
  4. Measure out a 1/2 cup of the mixture and set it aside. Pour remaining mixture into greased pan and press down to form a crust.
  5. Pour pie filling over and spread evenly.
  6. Sprinkle remaining crumbles over top.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until top is slightly golden.
  8. Serve warm or allow to cool. Refrigerate leftovers.

What is your favorite lemon treat?
