KEY LIME PIE BARS

  • 3 tbsp. margarine, softened
  • 3 tbsp. fat-free cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cups fat-free egg substitute
  • 1/3 cups fresh lime juice, from Key limes
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. To make the crust, beat margarine, cream cheese and 1/2 cup of sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and gradually add 3/4 cup of flour. Spread into baking dish using your hands (coat hands with 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar to prevent batter from sticking - or I stick my hand inside a plastic sandwich bag). Bake until crust is lightly browned, about 15
minutes.

To make the filling, beat egg and egg substitute in the same bowl used to make crust. Add remaining 1 cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of flour; beat on low speed until blended. Add
lime juice; beat on low speed until blended. Pour onto warm crust and bake 15 minutes more. Cool on a rack. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons powdered sugar.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
