Would this work using Splenda instead of sugar? I need to cut down on sugar, but the recipe sounds great?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2009

I love this recipe- I have used it many times- it's quite refreshing, and yet my only complaint is that I love the "crust" and reserved crumbs so much that I now make a little more than the recipe asks for- because you want it w/ every bite!
