Instructions
  1. DOUGH: Mix all ingredients just until combined. Do not overmix. Divide in half. Put one half to the freezer.
  2. Spread another half on the bottom of your baking dish*. Bake in 170 C (338 F) preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes. Cool slightly.
  3. FILLING:

  5. In a large bowl, mix yogurt with sour cream, sugar, lemon zest,vanilla and flour. Gently fold in egg whites.

  6. Pour filling on the baked dough. Take the other half of the dough from the freezer and grate it over the filling (as if you were grating apples).

  8. Cool Cream Pie Bars to room temperature and put in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Serve chilled.

Recipe Notes

* I usually bake Cream Pie Bars in 20 cm (8 inches) x 36 cm (15 inches) baking dish. The depth of the dish is 5 cm (2 inches).
