Once again you have out done yourself! I wonder if you can use splenda instead of sugar and what about low fat cream cheese, nah!

Thanks dear sister!
Will try it.

Oh MY does that look good! I may have to give that one a try!

Hoots, I don't know why you couldn't use Splenda. You would need to know how to do the conversion and low fat cream cheese would probably work great. I have a recipe that I am going to post next week that is for diabetics and people on a diet. Come back and see.

Here comes another 5 pounds. That looks so good and you know I HAVE to try it. Thanks. Unless you found that online or scanned it, that was an awful lot of typing. Very nice of you to do it.

Hi Lucy:

My condolences on your Astros getting swept. Now you know how it feels to be an A's fan. The Oakland Colusseum is 95 miles away from my front door.

Now, as to the recipie...

MMMMMMMM, worth breaking my diet for!!!

Oh my gosh, JUST LOOK AT THAT!!!! I'm totally drooling. What was the calorie count? Zero?

Oh my God. That just looks sinful!

If you read the nutritional facts quick enough, servings are 16 calories. Stop there and enjoy!!!!

You finally found one I don't like. For some reason, I'm not a fan of any kind of nut. (Except me, of course.)

Maybe if I just skip the pecan part...
