These look great! As soon as it cools off, I hope to start baking. I used to be pretty good back in the day! Can you recommend an alternative to the Splenda for sweetening?
There are a number of sugar substitutes if that's what you're looking for. Here's a few links to help you decide one from a baking perspective from Allrecipes.com http://allrecipes.com//HowTo/baking-with-sugar-and-sugar-substitutes/Detail.aspx and the other from a health perspective from the MayoClinic http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/artificial-sweeteners/MY00073. You'll have to cut and paste, links don't seem to work in comments. Hope this helps! Wish I could taste when you start baking again.
