Bottomless Pie


Perfumed with fresh ginger, this juicy, low-fat peach pie with a crunchy brown-sugar topping has everything except the crust and the fat. Pick ripe, sweet peaches to get the most flavor.

The recipe makes just enough for two servings, so you won't have leftovers sitting around to tempt you.
