Love these mini recipes, no leftovers, no waste. These were delicious and guilt free. I baked them in custard cups and they were done in 15 minutes. I'll be making these again and often. Made for PAC Fall '07. Thanks for a tasty treat Teri!

Cooking for 2 can be a challenge or an abundance of leftovers. These are very tasty and moist. Wouldn't know they were made with Splenda. I baked them in oven proof custard cups. DH and I both loved them.
