    This was delicious. I made a graham cracker crust with 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 3 T of yogurt and 2 T of lite brown sugar. I substituted maple syrup for honey, its all I had.

    It is a very good pie. Im not sure where MJ got her information, but traditional pie crust is 110 per slice, Graham cracker crust is 145. Very low , maybe she should just eat the filling it would only be around 158.

    1/2 cup egg substitute equals 2 eggs

    Lovely pie! Not exactly low fat, however. Anytime you use traditional pie crust, it ain't low fat baby!

    I am a fan of raspberries so of course I had to do it "my way'. It was fabulous! Of course I used raspberry seedless preserves. Next, I am going to try it with fresh peaches and then there will be peaches with raspberries and I'll call it Raspberry Melba . I do always put my fresh fruit pies in graham cracker crusts.

    @babs14075....... If you substitute real eggs you will need two eggs for 1/2 cup.I made this pie and it is delicious. You can't go wrong using this recipe if you need to take a dessert somewhere. Very yummy and easy to make.

    Sounds easy. I don't have egg substitute. Can I use one egg?
