DIRECTIONS:

  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, combine the eggs, 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Add the pumpkin puree and yogurt and mix until well blended. Pour the batter into the prepared pie crust.
  • Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown. Remove the pie from the oven and cool.
