No Karo Pecan Pie (Diabetic Friendly)


Author Notes: Have hunted for years for a pecan pie that could be made for diabetics without success. I finally had the brainstorm of how to go about it, but my father, for whom I had started this search, died 10 years ago so won't get to eat his pecan pie, but hopefully a lot of other pecan pie lovers can do so now.
I really like this pie because it seems to be smoother and less "dead" sweet than when made with corn syrup.

Can I substitute both sugars (white and brown) with the Splenda Blend?

a place we used to eat out at had a creamed pecan pie, the nuts were run through a food processor, made a real tasty treat but kept the original flavors, you might want to try it sometime in this recipe<br />
