This raspberry pie is one of my family’s favorites. It’s made with yogurt cheese, which is easy to prepare — and so versatile I often make a big batch to have on hand. I feel good knowing this dessert is not only low in fat but high in calcium. Sometimes I vary the recipe by using strawberries or another syrup-packed frozen fruit.
