Delicious and so easy to prepare. There have been questions about the accuracy of the carb count configured by Food.com. According to the Splenda help site there are 12 gm of carbs in 1/2 cup and 24 gm in 1 cup. My recipe calls for 3/4 cup which I figure to be 18gm for the entire pie. I submitted this information to Food.com and received this answer. "dojemi, At this time, the nutritional facts are limited to what is available from the USDA's database, which has only the data for Splenda packets and not Splenda Sugar Blend for Baking." If you choose to make this pie please take this information into consideration. Thank you. dojemi

CARB COUNT IS MISLEADING! This is a delicious pie, but why on earth do you recommend using Splenda Sugar Blend, and yet do not reflect the much higher carb count of this product in the nutrition stats! I made this pie and thought it was fantastic, but also thought I was only consuming 2.2 carbs per slice.... now I realize that instead, the real carb count was over 20 carbs per slice... which basically just set my diet back two weeks! Two weeks of spinach salads and chicken breasts derailed by a slice of splenda pie... that is just wrong!
yummy!!! I'm diabetic and treats like are hard to find,so I really enjoyed it. :D I'm also allergic to milk so insread of cream i used coconut milk ,I also added nutmeg,allspice,vanilla,and replaced 1/4 of a cup of splenda with honey to reduce the chemically taste.(I used regular splenda instead of the blend) It was very enjoyable,thank you. :)
This is very misleading....even though it's at the top of the nutritional label that the splenda sugar blend is not included in the carb count. I didn't see this and made it for my mother who has diabetes and she got a very high blood sugar spike...this could have been dangerous for her.
