Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Orange Creamsicle Pie

Hey everyone!! I didn't make this, but I sure did sample it.....and it was delicious!!!! Thank you so much Diane for surprising us Friday with this treat!!! On a personal note.....I haven't had anything with graham crackers in ages so I was truly in 7th heaven!!!

ORANGE CREAMSICLE PIE
Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 4 PointsPlus™

1 8-oz package fat-free cream cheese
1 8-oz container fat-free orange yogurt
5 packets sugar replacement (like Splenda)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 small package sugar-free orange gelatin
1 cup fat-free Cool Whip
1 low-fat graham cracker crust

Beat cream cheese and yogurt until creamy. Add sugar substitute and vanilla, continue mixing. Stir in orange gelatin; beat to blend. Fold in Cool Whip. Pour into pie crust. Chill at least 2 hours before serving.

That's it!!! Doesn't get much easier......or tastier!! Again, thanx Diane!!!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
