    I made this recipe, substituting Splenda, and 3 T brown sugar Splenda for the brown sugar. Also, I used Benacol spread instead of margarine. It was delicious, and my husband I both loved it! I want to try other fruit. - 12/30/07

    I made this dessert for company and they raved about it. One stated that it was the best dessert he'd ever had. We had fresh wild cranberries gleaned from the woods near our cottage, so the dessert was extra special. I put the lowest calorie version of Cool Whip on top, adding 25 cals. ENJOY! - 3/15/07
