Fried Apple Pie Rolls

Rating: 4.5 stars 15
In this healthy take on apple pie, egg roll wrappers stand in for pie crust, saving you calories and the headache of rolling out dough. We like to use Granny Smith apples because they hold their shape and provide tart balance to the sweet filling. Try dipping these handheld crispy treats in whipped cream.

Basic Crustless Pumpkin Pie

Rating: 5 stars 1
This low-fat crustless pumpkin pie is a perfect dessert for the dieters at your holiday meal or people who are watching their carbs.

Tomato-Corn Pie

Rating: 5 stars 15
Tomatoes and corn have a natural affinity for one another: the slight acidity of tomatoes balances the sweetness of the corn. Here they partner in a delicious quiche-like pie. The dough is very forgiving and bakes up into a sturdy shell that's great for just about any savory pie or tart. Perfect for a summer brunch or try it with a tossed salad for a light supper.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Rating: 5 stars 1
This healthy chocolate peanut butter pie is perfect for any occasion. We lighten up the ganache by using almond milk instead of the typical heavy cream. Peanuts add a welcome crunchy counterpoint to the luscious, creamy filling.

Pear Pie

The buttery flaky crust complements tender-crisp pears in this easy pear pie. The pears keep their texture after baking, and the walnut streusel on top adds nutty flavor and texture.

Peach Custard Pie

Rating: 5 stars 4
We use low-fat milk along with nonfat Greek yogurt in the creamy custard for this peach pie. The yogurt gives the custard a smooth texture without using cream or too many egg yolks. A slice is just as delicious served warm from the oven as it is chilled. For an added treat, serve topped with fresh blueberries.

Tomato Galette

The filling in this tomato galette celebrates fresh ripe tomatoes at their best. The flaky, buttery crust gets a slight bite from cornmeal. Goat cheese and pesto give it rich, savory flavor, while fresh basil sprinkled on at the end gives it a fresh, summery finish.

Plum Tart

Juicy, caramelized plums combine with fresh lemon zest and a nutty crust in this easy plum tart. Feel free to use walnuts, almonds or hazelnuts in the crust to complement the fruity plum flavor.
