  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup fat-free milk

  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 1 cup light sour cream
  • 1/2 fresh lemon, cut into thin slices or twists
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream, optional


Preheat oven to 375 degree. In a 9 inch pie pan, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter. Using a fork, mix well. Press firmly in bottom of pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
