Spiced Yellow Summer Pie

Looking for a delicious, healthy dessert? Each serving has only 155 calories and 3 grams of fat. They'll never guess the main ingredient! This recipe is from my cookbook, The Meatless Gourmet - Easy Lowfat Favorites. It's quick and simple. Enjoy!

Makes 8 servings
1-1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
1-1/2 tablespoons honey
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

2-1/2 heaping cups yellow summer squash, unpeeled, cut into 1/2-inch to 1-inch pieces
4 egg whites
1 cup nonfat dry milk
1/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine butter and honey in a 9-inch pie pan. Add graham cracker crumbs and mix until crumbs are moistened. Press crumbs onto bottom and sides of pan to form crust. Bake 5 minutes.
In a blender container, combine all filling ingredients. Blend until smooth. Pour into crust. Bake 25 minutes, or until set.
Cool slightly, then chill.
