I wasn't sure what to expect when I made these, I'm just starting to cook with Splenda. I found out that they are really good! They are almost too sweet for me though and I may use less Splenda next time. Other than that, I liked them a lot and will make them again.
Wonderful. I am going to sub some of the water next time with sugar free maple syrup to get a little bit more pecan pie taste. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing.
These are delicious! I made them for gifts this Christmas--proud to have something tasty for the diabetics on the list. Thanks!
