Three ingredients, fast, easy and freezer friendly--a perfect springtime recipe!
Easy Peasy Lemon Bars
1 box Angel Food Cake mix (1 step)
1 can (15 oz.) Lemon Pie filling
Cream Cheese Frosting (canned or homemade)
Mix together Angel Food Cake mix and Lemon Pie filling in medium bowl, just till combined.
Spread mixture in a greased jelly roll pan.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
Cool in pan. Spread with cream cheese frosting and cut into squares.
These bars freeze beautifully. Just freeze on cookie sheets till hard and then package in freezer bags.
To thaw: take out of freezer 15 min. before serving (although I have been known to eat them frozen on occasion).
Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter or margarine, softened
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 lb. powdered sugar
Mix cream cheese and butter together with a mixer. Add vanilla. Slowly add powdered sugar. You can add a little water or milk if the frosting is too thick.
-You can freeze the leftover frosting. To thaw, bring to room temperature and beat with mixer till smooth.
