We have found the perfect key lime bars recipe that will still keep you on track with a Weight Watchers diet plan while satisfying your dessert craving.
- 3 tablespoons margarine, softened
- 3 tablespoons fat-free cream cheese
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 large egg yolk
- 3/4 cups all-purpose flour and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (separated)
- 3 tablespoons powdered sugar 1 large egg
- 1/4 cups fat-free egg substitute
- 1/3 cups fresh lime juice, from Key limes
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. To make the crust, beat margarine, cream cheese and 1/2 cup of sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and gradually add 3/4 cup of flour. Spread into baking dish using your hands (coat hands with 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar to prevent batter from sticking - or I stick my hand inside a plastic sandwich bag). Bake until crust is lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
- To make the filling, beat egg and egg substitute in the same bowl used to make crust. Add remaining 1 cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of flour; beat on low speed until blended. Add lime juice; beat on low speed until blended. Pour onto warm crust and bake 15 minutes more. Cool on a rack. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons powdered sugar.
