Pies & Pastries
Lowfat vanilla yogurt,
(8 oz. each)
Egg beaters 99% egg substitute
Cream Of Tartar
Place a coffee filter in a medium strainer. Spoon the plain yogurt into
the filter and set the strainer over a deep bowl. Cover, refrigerate and allow
to drain for 8 hours or overnight. Discard the drained-off whey. Refrigerate
yogurt until needed.
Crumble the graham crackers into the work bowl of a foodprocessor. Process
with on/off turns to make crumbs. Add the canola oil and process to combine.
Coat a 10-inch pie plate with nostick spray. Press the crumbs into the pan
to make a crust. Chill.
In a 2-quart saucepan, whisk together 1/2 cup honey and the cornstarch.
Whisk in the vanilla yogurt and drained plain yogurt. Cook over medium
heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and boils.
Remove from heat. Pour some of the hot mixture into the egg substitute.
Stir. Very slowly whisk that mixture back into the remaining hot mixture.
Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Remove from
heat and whisk in lemon juice, lemon extract and almond extract. Spoon
into the prepared crust. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar at medium speed until
foamy. Add 1 tablespoon honey and the vanilla. Beat at high speed until stiff
peaks form. Spread over pie filling, avoiding gaps where the meringue topping
meets the crust.
Bake at 325 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, until meringue is golden. Chill.
