ahusberg This was so easy to make, use softened butter for the crust. Only problem, is you will NOT be able to eat only one portion.

I made this a few days ago it was too good. I just tried again using granulated Sucralose instead of sugar for the filling. it tastes pretty good but it is missing the stickiness and chewy texture of the first batch. I found the crust easier to work with if you microwave the butter first.

hmm-just mixed the crust, and it's all dry ingredients- what's missing here????? Moderator comment: Be sure you make the filling. Ingredients are listed after the crust preparations.
