Cooking with Sake: Healthy Fruit Pie

Refreshing yet filling!
Sweets filled with whipped cream are delicious, but you may be concerned about the calories.
So instead of whipped cream, use drained yogurt to cut down on calories! It is still filling but lighter and healthier.

Sake is also very useful in western sweets! It adds a beautiful browning and savory aroma to the pie crust.
