Fern's lemon pie (lightened version below)

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 Whole large lemon , including peel; seeded and chopped
1 STICK butter; softened (2 T butter is sufficient)
1½ cup Sugar
4 Whole eggs

Put all through food processor. Pour into unbaked pie shell and bake at 350 degrees 40 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream.

My Lightened Version: I replaced the butter with 1Tablespoon Butter Buds (dry) and substitued 1 cup Egg Beaters for the eggs. I find no topping is needed. I usually use a graham cracker crust, but you can use any crust of your choosing. This version of the filling contains only ⅒ grams fat.

Note: If you want to use butter, 2 tablespoons is really enough. When you use a stick of butter, the filling is swimming in butter. Ugh! Recipe By : Fern Ebert
