Monday is Labor Day and we’re happily closed!
It’s still too hot in Texas for an outdoor cookout but that’s just what I want to do! Well, I don’t want to do it; I just want to enjoy the fruits of someone else’s labor. I have no idea how to run a charcoal grill.
Last Memorial Day I gave you a recipe for one of my favorite brisket rubs. I would love to know if any of you tried it since then. It is really good.
Today I thought I would commemorate this holiday with one of my most recently discovered favorite recipes. This time it’s a dessert, and it’s so incredibly easy I’m almost sorry to tell you. But here it is:
1 box angel food cake mix (the kind you just add water)
1 can lemon pie filling
Mix the cake mix together with the pie filling. Pour into lightly greased 9×13 pan (I use glass) and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. It will poof a lot and then sadly deflate when cooling.
You can sprinkle confectioner’s sugar on top after baking or make a glaze of lemon juice and confectioner’s sugar. I’ve done it both ways and you can’t go wrong. Plus they’re fat-free!
Try it and let me know what you think!
Enjoy your Labor Day holiday!
