    This was an excellent pie. Thank you for the recipe. I do a monthly newsletter where I work, and one of the features is "Recipe of the Month". I will be featuring this recipe in the May issue. The pie is flavorful, light, delicious, low in fat and calories. I did find fat-free lemon yogurt. Yoplait makes a Greek yogurt in fat free lemon flavor. I used lite cool whip and sweetner (Equal). Very very good. The reduced-fat graham crust added just enough sweetness to it to make it taste even better.

    Husband does not like Yogurt. I made this pie yesterday and Husband loves it and says it is a keeper. I did add more lemon rind (which I grated) and it was wonderful. I am now considering different flavours of yogurt to make more pies that Hubby will like :)

    My sister from out of town dropped in, and I wanted to make something special, yet easy. The hint of lemon was a hit.
