Really yummy light pie!!!

This is another Taste of Home recipe that we really like, especially in the summer!  It's really good even without the spreadable fruit.

Light Lemon Pie


    * 1 package (.3 ounces) sugar-free lemon gelatin
    * 1/2 cup boiling water
    * 3/4 cup cold water
    * Sugar substitute equivalent to 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar
    * 1 cup (8 ounces) 1% cottage cheese
    * 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen reduced-fat Cool Whip® whipped topping, thawed
    * 1 reduced-fat graham cracker crust (8 inches)
    * 1/2 cup 100% strawberry spreadable fruit
    * 8 large strawberries, halved


In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in cold water and sugar substitute. Refrigerate until partially set.
    In a fine strainer, drain the cottage cheese. Place cottage cheese in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl; stir in gelatin mixture. Fold in whipped topping.
    Pour into crust. Refrigerate until set. Just before serving, cut into slices; garnish each with 1 tablespoon spreadable fruit and two strawberry halves. Yield: 8 servings.
