Very Cherry!

Sometimes we get a cherry craving so powerful that no amount of Sugar Free Jell-O or Sugar Free Popsicles will cure it. It's the kind of craving that can only be kicked to the curb with a slice of pie bursting with gobs of sweet & fruity cherry filling. That's why we've created our soon-to-be-famous Topless Cherry Pie. It's crazy-low in fat and calories and super-high in fiber. Woohoo! And sure the pie is topless, but you should feel free to enjoy it while wearing your favorite blouse.



2 cups Fiber One bran cereal

3 tbsp. light whipped butter

2 tbsp. Egg Beaters, Original

1 tbsp. cornstarch

1 20-oz. can no-sugar-added cherry pie filling (like the ones by Comstock and Lucky Leaf)**

8 servings (16 tbsp.) Fat Free Reddi-wip



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Melt butter in the microwave for 20 seconds. Combine crumbs with melted butter and Egg Beaters and stir until well mixed. In an oven-safe pie dish sprayed lightly with nonstick spray, evenly distribute mixture, using your hands or a flat utensil to firmly press & form the crust. Press it into the edges and up along the sides of the dish. Bake crust in oven for 10 minutes, then remove and allow to cool. In a medium-sized nonstick pot, combine cornstarch with cherry filling. Heat stovetop at medium heat, stirring often. Once cherry mixture begins to bubble, lower heat and continue to stir for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for several minutes. Evenly spoon cherry mixture into piecrust and allow pie to cool and set in the fridge for several hours before cutting and serving. Before serving, top each slice with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping. Serves 8!

Cherry WHY?

Don't get us wrong; gooey, sweet cherry filling exploding out of a flaky piecrust is definitely exciting. But don't be one of those "it's made with fruit, how bad for you can it be?" people. Please! A tiny little slice of Mrs. Smith's sugar-packed pie will set you back 330 calories and SIXTEEN fat grams. And we know for a fact that most home-baked and restaurant versions are way WAY worse. So the next time you're craving cherry pie, ignore Mrs. Smith and her freakish, fatty frozen dessert, and whip up HG's Topless Cherry Pie instead.
