    Joanne Bryant's Note:

    I found this recipe in the first issue of Cooking Light and it really is great. Adding the egg white is a brilliant idea! Holds together very well. I am diabetic so I love the reduced sugar and reduced fat content.

      The egg whites made it chewy and hard. Wished I'd followed another recipe instead because it ruined an otherwise great pie.

      Combining the ingredients in a food processor makes all the difference! Even without adding sugar or an egg white, my crust came out with a solid, store-bought texture that kept its form when the pie was cut.

      No rating because I didn't like the results of my tweaking ... used graham wafer crumbs and eggbeaters. The crust was too hard for me. I liked the low-fat but not convinced that adding egg works.
