Apple etc. pie

This is a recipe I developed with items I had in my refrigerator.  It is an alternative to high fat ingredients and low in sugar.  I must say though that the pie crust is not low in fat.  I think it is very tasty but slightly tart pie.

You can add more sugar if you like OR A SWEETER TYPE APPLE..EXAMPLE: Cortland apple or Gala apple are good for pies.

1-5.3 oz. plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
1-5.3 oz. fruit on the bottom Greek cherry yogurt
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
4 apples peeled and sliced
1 small peach peeled and sliced
pinch salt
1 pkg. refrigerated pie crust
light whipped cream optional

Cut apples and peach in large bowl.  Add sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch and salt.  In a separate bowl mix yogurt and egg. Fold yogurt/egg mixture into fruit mix.

In a pie dish place one of the refrigerated pie crusts.  Pinch top and poke with a fork bottom and sides.  Bake 10 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Let cool.

When cooled pour ingredients into baked shell.  Top with other crust.  Seal and pinch sides and make a few fork pokes on top and sides.

Bake 400 degrees approximately 40 to 45 minutes.Cover crust edges with foil or a crust protector.  Crust will be brown.  Cool completely.  Refrigerate overnight if possible.
