Can I use a different flavor of pie filling?

Absolutely! While the zesty lemon flavor is a favorite of mine, feel free to experiment with other pie fillings like cherry, blueberry, or even apple. Just keep in mind that the taste and texture may vary slightly depending on the filling you choose.

My lemon bars turned out too moist. What went wrong?

A: If your lemon bars are too moist, it’s possible that they were underbaked. Make sure to bake them for the full 25 minutes, and keep an eye on them as oven temperatures can vary. Another reason could be using a smaller size of pie filling can. Be sure to use the 22 oz size as mentioned in the recipe.

How should I store these lemon bars?

To keep your lemon bars fresh and tasty, store them in an airtight container at room temperature. They should stay good for about 3 to 4 days. If you want to keep them for longer, you can also store them in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Can I freeze the lemon bars for later?

Yes, you can! To freeze your lemon bars, first, let them cool completely. Then, wrap each bar individually in plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container or a zip-top freezer bag. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. To enjoy them later, just thaw them at room temperature for a couple of hours before serving.


  • 1 box (16 oz) angel food cake mix
  • 1 can (22 oz) lemon pie filling


  1. First things first, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Grab a large mixing bowl and pour in the entire contents of the angel food cake mix box. This mix is the key to achieving that heavenly, pillowy texture for our lemon bars. (source:
  3. Next, add the entire can of lemon pie filling into the mixing bowl. This is the star ingredient that brings that irresistible zesty lemon flavor to our bars.
  4. Gently stir the cake mix and lemon pie filling together until well combined. Be cautious not to overmix, but ensure that there’s no dry powder hiding at the bottom of the bowl.
  5. Take a 9×13-inch baking dish and coat it generously with non-stick cooking spray. This will make sure your lemon bars come out easily after baking.
  6. Pour your lemon bar batter into the prepared baking dish, spreading it evenly across the surface.
  7. Pop the baking dish into your preheated oven and let it bake for about 25 minutes.
  8. Once the baking is done, carefully remove the dish from the oven and let it cool completely for 1 to 2 hours. The bars will shrink a bit as they cool, which is perfectly normal.
  9. After your lemon bars have cooled down, you can add a final touch by dusting them with powdered sugar to create a lovely garnish.
  10. Cut the bars into individual servings and enjoy the amazing texture and zesty lemon flavor of your homemade Two-Ingredient Lemon Bars!

So there you have it – an incredibly simple, yet delightful lemon bars recipe that’s perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth.
