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?

I made this recipe and it turned out fabulous, just what I needed on a hot summer day! I will, however, use half as much vanilla extract next time I make it.

I'd use graham cracker crust instead of pastry crust. That's the way my mother always made it--delicious!!!!

I made this for a family gathering and it was a big hit. It was very easy to make and it was so refreshing and delicious. It was also one of the few healthy desserts at the family gathering, which is why I made it. I loved how tasty and low fat it was! I will definitely be making this again.
