  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick salted butter (1/2 cup) softened to room temperature
  • 1 (22 oz) can lemon pie filling


  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a bowl, combine softened butter with dry cake mix.
  • Mix until crumbly.
  • Set aside 1/2 cup of this crumbly mixture for the topping. 
  • Take the rest of the crust mixture and press it into a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Spread it out evenly and then just go around and pack it down in there with your hands.
  • Spoon lemon pie filling onto crust.
  • Then take the 1/2 cup of crust mixture that you set aside earlier and sprinkle all over lemon pie filling.
  • Bake at 350F for about 20-25 minutes.
  • The crumble on top will just start to turn a very light golden brown.
  • Slice up and serve.



This crust slices up very nicely. I like to eat it while it is still a little warm but it was really good nice and cold from being stored in the refrigerator. This should be covered and stored in the fridge. I found if I just covered it and left it out that the crust would soften up a bit so put in the refrigerator if not eating it all the same day it's made.
