The notes

  • If you’re going to make the pie entirely, then you should remember to add the lemon rinds if you like. It adds other flavors to the pie.
  • It will often amplify the flavors too. Lemon flavor will complement the blueberry flavors.
  • If you want even to save more time, then you should buy your shortbread crusts. Of course, when you use the shortbread crust then will be ready in just a little over five minutes.
  • If you want, though, you can make it by yourself as we do here, but then make sure you also add the lemon rinds. They will give your crust bread the lemony flavor as well.

Cooking Tip:

  • The number of ingredients we used here they can make it a six-inch pie plate.
  • Do not soften the butter in the pie crust; use it directly in the cold storage.
  • The baking time is based on the temperature of your oven, and the surface can be colored golden brown.
  • Here you can be sure to have the light and refreshing yogurt pie you will like, especially if you aren’t strictly a health freak.

FAQs

I have leftovers. Can I store it for future use?

Of course, you will comfortably store it in the fridge. When you make the pie, you may not make exact enough rather more than needed. This is what we are interested in because you don’t want it to spoil. When you have eaten enough, set the remains in the air-tight container and then into the refrigerator.

Here in the fridge, you will have it last just a maximum of five days if you want to have the pie last longer; though, you can set it in the freezer. Remember, when you are about to serve it, you should thaw it overnight and then use the reheating process.

Can I use regular yogurt?

Yes, you can use the regular one just as much as you could go for the healthier option, the Greek yogurt. We also have many people who don’t enjoy Greek yogurt.

Must I use the lemon rinds for the pie?

Understand that the lemon comes to add on the flavors. You don’t always have to add the rinds, but don’t forget to make it if you enjoy the lemony flavors.

How is it going not to cause some wetness if you use yogurt?

This is one question you won’t stop asking as a beginner. Although the yogurt is watery, it will not make the pie a soggy mess. It will maintain the proper texture whether you are using regular yogurt or Greek yogurt.

Are you a health freak?

I can tell you I’m not one to count calories on the scale for everything I eat, but I maintain the perfect body. Now, if you prefer to be a little happy eating these desserts, then you’re going to enjoy this meal too.

My policy is always simple ‘don’t overdo anything’ remember to use anything you do in moderation. So be sure to eat it as much as you enjoy but in moderation.

I’m always inspired to say that you should try and please your family even if you are fit and healthy. So we have the perfect recipe to use today; consider using it today. Most of the time, you will find the dessert is going to be at the restaurants. Just don’t wait for the day you are in the restaurant.
