Tried 'n' True: Try this when looking for a quick, easy dessert

Special to the Tribune-Star

TERRE HAUTE — This recipe uses a small, square, 8-inch cake pan. This recipe is from Mary Hunter.

Instead of sugar, I use sweetener. Gene gets to have a little bit of sweet. You can get sugar-free pie filling. With a diabetic, make sure you adjust for the fruit.

Remember, I take two different brands of sweetener.

In this case, don’t use as much as the recipe calls for. With 1 cup of sugar, I use 1⁄2 to 3⁄4 cup of sweetener. Adjust to your own taste.

It’s such a quick and easy dessert. Thanks Mary.
