Low fat creamy lemon meringue pie! Honestly, the best LMP I've ever eaten. Lemon filling is old-fashioned creamy and neither too sweet or too tart. Meringue is so creamy and delicious! For best results in both taste and texture, let pie chill 4-24 hours before serving.

Recipe Ingredients for (Cooking Light) Lemon Meringue Pie

1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 large egg white
2 teaspoons lemon rind
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
14 ounces g) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
6 ounces Yogurt
1 unflavored gelatin
3 tablespoons water
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Recipe Directions for (Cooking Light) Lemon Meringue Pie

  1. To prepare crust, combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl; toss with a fork until moist. Press into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 325 for 15 minutes or until lightly browned; cool on a wire rack.

  2. To prepare filling, combine lemon rind and next 3 ingredients (rind through yogurt) in a medium bowl, and set aside. Sprinkle gelatin over 3 tablespoons water in a small microwave-safe bowl; let stand 1 minute. Microwave at HIGH 15 seconds, stirring until gelatin dissolves. Stir gelatin mixture thoroughly into yogurt mixture. Spoon filling into prepared crust. Press plastic wrap onto surface of filling; chill 1 hour or until almost firm.

  3. To prepare the meringue, combine 2/3 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until candy thermometer registers 240. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed of a mixer until foamy. Pour hot sugar syrup in a thin stream over egg white mixture, beating at high speed until stiff peaks form. Remove the plastic wrap from filling. Spread meringue evenly over filling, sealing to edge of crust.

  4. Preheat broiler.
