Cookbook creator says: I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. I also made 12 cupcakes for the kids and a 9 x 9 pan for the adults. This recipe is beautiful. Also if you cut the 9 x9 pan into 9 pieces and reduce the sugar you are looking at 114.42 calories per serving. Enjoy!

No Bake Graham Cracker Cheesycake
Very Good 4.6/5
(472 ratings)

This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers.

Self-Crust Pumpkin Pie
Very Good 4.7/5

1/8 of pie = 2 WW points
1/8 of pie = 1/2 vegetable serving
