Angel Food Lemon Bars: Tutorial

As I was baking up a storm this weekend, I also made two-ingredient Angel Food Lemon Bars.  (Have you noticed a trend with my kitchen activities?  The fewer ingredients a recipe has the more likely it is that I'll make it!)  I found the lemon bars on pinterest, but they were so simple that I didn't save the recipe.  For future reference, here it is:

Outrageously Easy Angel Food Lemon Bars1 - box of Angel Food Cake Mix (make sure it's the kind that is "just add water" where other ingredients aren't needed)
1 - 15 ounce can of Lemon Pie filling

Combine the cake mix and the filling, and mix until you have a fairly smooth consistency.  Pour batter in to a 9x13 pan (make sure it's a non-stick pan, or use some non-stick spray first) and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.  Tip: at 20 minutes, I used the old fork-test to see if the cake was cooked completely, but because they are lemon bars, they don't really finish the way that cake does.  I gave it another two minutes in the oven and called it a day.  I would say as long as the corners of the dish are golden brown, you're all set.

After I pulled the dish out of the oven, I sprinkled a little powdered sugar on top for looks.  :)  (So I guess that makes it a three-ingredient recipe, ha).  Let the bars cool, then cut and serve.  The bars will be a lot less dense (more fluffy) than traditional lemon bars due to the Angel Food, which I think adds to their appeal.
