NOTE: This pie is sweet and not for diabetics. But if you make your own powdered sugar by grinding Splenda into a powder, you can eat some too.
TIP For Diabetics: *To make your homemade powdered sugar from Splenda…take 1 cup Splenda and 2 tablespoons cornstarch, using a clean coffee grinder (or a blender) place both ingredients in the cup, place the lid on and pulse into a powder form. This can be used for dusting cakes, cupcakes…etc. You can even make a frosting with it.
