I love this creamy pie. When I have one in the fridge I often eat it for breakfast! I prefer to use full-fat cheeses and whip my own cream to lower the carb count. I've also tried using other flavors of gelatin, but always come back to lemon.

This is my always dieting husband's favorite recipe.He enjoys it topped with fresh fruit or sugar free pie filling.
