Guilt Free Sorbet Pie

This is a recipe my sister discovered while paging through this month's Cooking Light Magazine.  I was trying to decide on what type of dessert to make for my mom's birthday and asked Bonnie for any suggestions.  She immediately said this looked really delicious and also quite simple.  Oreo cookie crust, refreshing sorbet, whipped cream and shaved chocolate- what is there not to love?!  I jumped on the idea.  It turned out so pretty- very feminine with the pink, brown and white color scheme and equally delicious.  While eating it, I just couldn't get over the fact on how NOT unhealthy it was!  The sorbet and whipped cream were both fat free so all you were indulging in was the Oreo cookie crust and the chocolate shavings- hardly anything to stress about!  This was a simple dessert to prepare and and left a nice impact, pressenation wise.  I am looking forward to trying this out again with different flavors.  I'm thinking graham cracker crust, pineapple sorbet with maybe a sprinkle of toasted coconut in place of the chocolate shavings.....

Guilt Free Sorbet Pie
Oreo Cookie Crust
Raspberry or strawberry sorbet, lightly softened
Fat Free Whipped Cream, unfrozen
chocolate Shavings and fresh berries for a garnish

Fill pie crust with lightly softened sorbet (don't let it be completely liquid, it would be too difficult to work with.  Just soften to the point that makes it spreadable).  Top with Whipped Cream and place back into the freezer to re-harden.  When ready to serve sprinkle chocolate shavings on top and garnish with fresh berries.  Serve immediately.
