Chobani Lemon Pies

Looking to make a healthier switch and to add a little yogurt to your recipes?
Chobani at www.Chobani.com  makes it super easy!
 I was sure surprised. I had been wanting to make some pies for awhile now but the sugar filled jams and pie fillings always made me think twice. I am not much of a sugar eater, but I do love a nice warm piece of pie with a cup of tea.

Today I made my version of a mini lemon pie using some Chobani Greek Lemon Yogurt. What a delicious little pie, small enough to not compromise your diet and full of all the benefits of Greek yogurt!

First you will need:
Chobani Greek Lemon Yogurt
2 rolls of pastry dough (homemade or store bought)
1 lemon
1 egg with 1 tablespoon of water added (beaten)
3-4 inch Heart shaped cookie cutter
1 teaspoon cornstarch
optional: some chocolate chips melted for drizzling finished pies

Heat oven to 400*
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Roll out dough and cut as many hearts out as you can I ended up with 5 pies
Mix the yogurt with the cornstarch and add a tablespoon of lemon juice from the fresh lemon.



Place half the hearts on the tray, add a spoonful of the yogurt, next brush the edges with the egg mix and layer on the top heart, press down the edges only with your fingers to seal, then using a fork press the edges, this helps to seal and makes a lovely decoration around the edge.




Brush the tops with the egg mix and bake for about 12-16 minutes, just until browned around the edges.

Gorgeous!



If you desire a little chocolate, melt your chips and drizzle on the top!


The inside turns to a nice creamy custard texture, with just enough lemon tartness, not too sweet.
These would make perfect little pies for a tea party or just a little after dinner dessert.

Chobani has so many flavors of yogurt, you can make any pie you desire!
Just head over to www.Chobani.com and see all the great flavors and recipes they have for you!
I am thinking of some Chobani chocolate yogurt pies for my chocolate loving husband!

Hope you enjoy your little Chobani pies!
