This is a Test

Just a test here to see if I can use my Flickr photos. I usually use Image Shack.

I can upload Flickr very easy (with easy loader), but when I access the site I have a few problems.

This is a very light lemon pie.

I adapted it to add fresh lemon because I thought it
would give it a more original taste.

It does seem to help.

Of course it isn’t a “real lemon” cream pie,
but anyone serious about dieting I don’t believe will complain.

Light Lemon Cream Pie-Adapted from Weight Watchers

1 each pie crust (9 inch) — baked
1 3/8 ounces lemon gelatin powder — sugar free (small box)
1 cup boiling water
1 cup crushed ice
1 each lemon — zested and juiced
8 ounces fat free whipped topping

Have your baked crust cooled.

Disolve the gelatin in the boiling water. Add the ice and stir to cool.
Add 1/2 of the lemon juice and the lemon zest. You can save the
remainder of the juice for something else. Now whip in the whipped
topping very well, saving back just enough to pipe around the pie

Pour this mixture into the pie crust and refrigerate about 1 hour.
Place remaining whip topping in a piping bag or just a baggy with
the corner snipped to pipe arount the pie before serving.

    It must have something in the stars cause as a fellow Susan I came across your name about five times this morning. I took it as a sign to check out your blog, and I’m so glad I did!
    I’ve been looking at your photos, and I just love them. And what a delicious recipe for lemon pie!

    Is this a test of my will power? If so, I failed. I want some of that pie now!
