I don't have my old weekly program booklets and several years ago there was a recipe for a "Creamy Pecan Pie" that would be perfect for the upcoming holidays. Does anybody recall this pie and have your old booklets to look through? I know it is not published in any of the WW general cookbooks, although I haven't been able to find the big Dessert cookbook to check there. Thanks!
I'm going to post this recipe. When I figured the points by hand, I got 5.5 per slice. If someone doesn't mind, I'd like to see how Mastercook calculates the points.
Skinny Pie Crust
1/2 c. sifted all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. diet margarine (must be at rooom temperature)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Mix flour, salt & baking powder together in a deep bowl. Add margarine all at once. Cut with fork or pastry blender til no pastry sticks to side of bowl. Shape into ball. Roll out in saran wrap to fit pie pans. (This crust is really good, I can't usually make pie crust but this one I can). I used Blue Bonnett reduced calorie/fat margarine. I've never tried it with fat-free margarine.
1 unbaked pie shell
1/4 cup Splenda or 6 packets Equal
1 c. sugar free maple flavored syrup (I used Carey's)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. diet margarine
1/4 tsp. lite salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Beat everything together except for the pecans. Pour into unbaked pie crust. Sprinkle with pecans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 mins.
Makes 8 servings.

"It's the taste of the South--chewy, scrumptious, downright decadent--and now it can be yours without the extra fat and sugar! If you bring these bars to a holiday bash, you'll be the most popular cook on the block."
