Two-Ingredient Lemon Bars

FYI – I did try this recipe and it was so delicious! And it was easy!. You have to try it!
———————————————————————————————————
This simple, two-ingredient lemon bar is a nostalgic recipe for me. A friends mother had made these lemon bars for a birthday party, and my mom asked for the recipe. I remember my mom telling me that it was easy enough for me to make – it was one of the first recipes I remember making mostly on my own. As a result, every time I make these bars, I recall every detail of the birthday party from the games we played and the weather to the park where it was held.

While I don’t expect, you to get all nostalgic putting together this easy recipe, it is one of the easiest bar recipes I have ever found. All you need it an angel food cake mix and a can of lemon pie filling.

Mix them together and bake in a 9×13 cake pan at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. As they are cooling, you can sprinkle with powder sugar if you wish (Which I guess technically makes this a 3-ingredient recipe).

Yes, that is the name of this dessert. It sounds really good and I plan to try it. Here is the recipe:
