When I saw these on the Splenda mailer I get in my email, I had to save it. These remind me SO much of a lemon pie. Not a chiffon fluffy lemon pie, but the ones that kinda resemble jello. Those are my favorite kind of lemon pie. I cannot wait to try them!

Made these at the request of my brother. They were okay for sugar free, no aftertastes or anything. The crust needed to have been a little sweeter for my taste. Not my favorite but pretty good.
