Greek Yogurt Pie

It was pouring down rain and very cold when Leonard decided that he wanted a chess or buttermilk pie. I always try to bake what he wants but I was completely out of milk or any powdered milk product, but I had some yogurt so why not I thought. Using that yogurt would be better than driving fifteen miles to the store for buttermilk in the cold rain. Thus my yogurt pie was developed and it is delicious!

Starting With a Unbaked Pie Shell

 Enjoy!
I just love being able to develop a recipe that comes out so good. Leonard already wants to know when we will have this one again.

I hope that you are all warm and cozy and having a wonderful day, come back to see us real soon!
Peace and Joy

  1. Isn't Greek yogurt wonderful?? I love eating it with honey and never would have thought to put it in a pie. I can imagine how yummy it is and I love fresh grated nutmeg. I used some in a white sauce last night. Hope you're enjoying your weekend Miz Helen!

  15. That looks really good. Wonder if I could use my homemade yogurt. I don't usually buy yogurt because I make it. Is Greek yogurt really different?
