Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday and Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a great one!!!

I made Weight Watcher's lemon pie so that's what I decided to share today!  I thought it was really good.  My daughter, Lauren, wasn't so fond of it. She said it was a little "too mushy"...maybe I've been dieting too long...I could have eaten the whole thing!  Just don't make the same mistake I made and use a "deep dish" pie was sort of lost inside mine! 

 One serving, which is only 1/10 of the pie is 4 points.  Here is the recipe:


Weight Watchers Creamy Lemon Pie
(serves 10) 4pts on Weight Watchers Points Plus

6 whole reduced-fat cinnamon graham crackers
2 Tbsp Butter
11 oz. fat-free sweetened condensed milk
2 large eggs
1/2 fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp lemon zest

Preheat oven t 350 degrees

Grind graham crackers in food processor until fine crumbs from.  Or place crackers in a resealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin.  Place crumbs in a small bowl.

Melt butter on stovetop or in microwave and pour over graham cracker crumbs, mixing with a fork until completely moistened.  Press crumbs evenly onto bottom of a 9-inch pie pan; place crust in refrigerator while preparing lemon filling.

In a medium bowl, combine condensed milk and eggs; mix until smooth.  Add lemon juice and zest, stir until incorporated and pour into prepared crust.

Bake pie for 15 minutes.  Cool completely and for best flavor, serve chilled. Yields 1 piece per serving

Notes: this pie can be baked and frozen for up to two weeks.  Defrost and serve chilled.

Happy Thanksgiving! That lemon pie looks super delish and the fact that it is calorie-wise is wonderful! Also like that you can make ahead and freeze! Thanks for hosting S&T Friday!

Hope your Thanksgiving Day went good for you, too, Cindy. I was so careful to not eat too much but still feel yucky; it's just far too much food on this holiday (but we never learn, huh!).

I went down to your "you might also like" section and you had cool pix of the antique store in Soquel. You have some killer shopping near you; great location it seems, in any direction!

Gotta say, I like this lemon pie recipe, so thanx for posting. Of course, I never met a lemon dessert I didn't like, especially if it uses the diet-friendly (NOT!!) lemon curd. I think from now on, as I drool at my favorite restaurant's bakery case, wanting to take home a square of those delicious lemon bars with the dusting of white powdered sugar, I'll eat 1/10 of a for-real, diet-friendly lemony WW/Cindy pie! What I like about yours is that it has recognizable ingredients and not too many of them.

Happy day after Thanksgiving. Thank you for hosting the wonderful party!

Cindy your lemon pie is the same recipe as my lemon meringue pie.
Only difference is you used fat free ingredients so I know how good it was. Delicious!!! Could you use sugar free cool whip on top where I use meringue.
Just wondering. You tell Lauren I said that is what you call a "No Guilt Pie". :)

Susan @ Real Girl Designs said...

That looks yummy! I made key lime pie as one of our Thanksgiving desserts (I also made pineapple upside down cake, and my son made brownies). I will have to try your recipe.
