Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I could not find Sugar Free Cherry preserves in my local stores, so I used Sugar free peach preserves. Very good, even my husband liked them. However, I do not know how you got the calorie count and carb count that you did. My peach 'tarts' ended up being 26 calories per 1 tart, and 4.66 net carbs. Maybe the Cherry preserves is less calories and carbs than the peach??? Still, not too bad nutritionally for a light, crispy, sweet summer dessert!

The directions says to mix pie filling with splenda, but the ingredients lists sugar free cherry preserves. Which is it. What is the correct recipe and amounts needed?

Thanks for your comment! The recipe instructions have been updated. You will need sugar free cherry preserves, whipped topping and orange zest. No pie filling or Splenda. We hope you enjoy these little treats!

You said to combine pie filling with splenda but you did not list how much splenda to use.

We have updated the recipe instructions. You will not need Splenda for this recipe. You will only need preserves, whipped topping and orange zest for the filling. Thanks for your comment and happy cookin'!
