With a few minor (to me anyway) I was very very pleased with this recipe. Because I'm diabetic I used a 1/3 cup non hydrogenated margarine for the butter, Splenda for the honey and added 1/4 cup of skim milk to replace the liquid and fat free yogurt along with 1/2 a cup of egg whites for the whole eggs. I love the way that it turned out :D. For it being made with whole wheat bread flour it has a very light texture in the inside and the crust has a flakiness that is very reminiscent of a good pie crust. The mild lemon is a classic with blueberries and it was a winner here. Made for Heart Healthy Tag--February 2010
