This is a recipe I found in a magazine years ago, and I still stick to it today. Back then, I was drawn to it just because it was simple and I happened to have all of the ingredients (not necessarily low fat) in my kitchen. Today, I do try to stick to the healthier options, and I like that it only uses one crust. This is one of my kids’ favorites and we always devour two pies quickly.
