      The crust is yummy. But it's easy to broke. For the filling, I used only 1/2 cup of splenda instead of sugar. The taste of the filling is so good and creamy. I used my torch only on one serving. And even though we love creme brulee and lemon pie, it's weird eating it "brulee". We prefer it like that, and no "brulee". Thanks Jess.
