Fresh Peach and Yogurt No-Bake Pie Recipe

Fresh Peach and Yogurt No-Bake Pie Recipe

This is such a honey of a pie, and you donít have to heat the oven up to make it. Juicy fresh peaches loll sensuously in a sweet-tart lemony sauce underneath a creamy yogurt topping. You can make the crunchy and delightful walnut crust in advance, or use a store-bought premade crust to really save time.

You serve it chilled, so itís cool, refreshing, and utterly divine.

INGREDIENTS

3 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup fruit juice
1/4 cup honey
grated peel of one lemon
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
6 fresh peaches, dipped briefly in boiling water, peeled, and chopped into bite-size pieces
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup yogurt or sour cream
1 walnut crust (see below), or premade crust

1. Mix cornstarch, fruit juice, and honey in a pan. Turn heat on to medium-high and bring to a boil, boiling until thick and clear, around 5 minutes.

2. Add lemon juice and peel and mix to combine.

3. Place diced peaches in premade pie crust and pour honey-lemon sauce over peaches.

4. Chill. Before serving, mix vanilla (and some honey or other sweetener, if desired) into yogurt or sour cream and gently spread on pie.

Serves 6 – 8.

Walnut Crust

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1. Combine dry ingredients. Gradually add honey and oil, mixing well. Press mixture into a buttered 9-inch deep-dish pie plate.

2. Bake at 350F for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool before using.

Women need friends, according to many health articles I've read, even more than men do. It seems to…

Sorry for your loss and grateful Bebe is okay and going to a good home. What a sweet dog.

Interesting, but I must admit that I really hadn't been wondering about this.

Pretty cool - thanks.
