"YOU WON’T BELIEVE THIS!!!!! I am a diabetic. This is amazing. You will love this lemon pie. Works very well in individual tarts too. Bite sized heaven to serve to guests. I hope you try this. It is low fat, low calorie and low sugar. I find that using both the Splenda and NutraSweet together is cheaper. Do not add the sweeteners until the thickened water is at full bloom and OFF the stove. High heat kills NutraSweets sweetening power."

"I used lime kool Aid with lime juice and all Splenda and no gelatin . It set up just fine but it lacked a creaminess. You have to love the fact that it has almost no calories but I think I try this again using gelatin and adding some fat free evaporated milk. Perhaps using the crust would make a difference in the overall taste and texture but I just put it into dessert dishes."
"I can see how this would be a really good substitute for "All Things Evil" in regular pie filling, but I think I flubbed up, so I won't rate it right now. I don't have a lot of experience cooking desserts and the like. I followed the directions to the letter, but I think I didn't let it thicken enough. I ended up adding more cornstarch/water. I'm afraid my photo depicts the jello-like consistency I achieved which, because of too much cornstarch, rendered the flavor "off". My fault. I do want to get this down, though, so I'll try again. Thank you for posting, MUSEconnie!"
"Unbelievable! Yes, this is just as good as it says it is. The only thing I did different was leave out the Nutrasweet and add in more splenda, and I added 1/4 tsp of lemon extract to give it that 'sharp' taste. Very, very good! I'm about to go make it again and use it for lemon bars! Oh, nd I definitely used the gelatine to keep it from 'weeping.' Worked beautifully."
