Recipe: Cherry Angel Food Cake Bites

"My family loves this easy low-cal dessert...good to make for family/work functions."

1 box Angel Food cake mix
1 large can (15-16oz) of cherry sugar free pie filling (use any sugar free pie filling for a different flavor)

Mix both ingredients together in a large bowl. Mixture will expand as you stir. 
Spray a 13x9 glass pan with Pam Cooking Spray and place Angel Food cake mixture in pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Allow to cool and cut into 24 square bites. 

This is super moist with only these two ingredients and will stay moist for several days...Enjoy!
