    EXCELLENT! I substituted 1/2 cup Brown Sugar Twin + pinch of Stevia powder for the Splenda and used low-sugar strawberry jam. - 11/15/09

    So good that I ate too many of them. I made them with blueberry instead of blackberry. Make sure to let them cool before you take them out and try to cut them; otherwise, you're likely to break a few... and then you'll be tempted to eat those pieces, too (if you're anything like me). - 2/1/08

  • These were great! I used black cherry preserves (hubby doesn't like blueberry) and they turned out great. Loved them for breakfast this morning. - 12/13/10
