I have a huge sweet tooth and I'm always looking to satisfy it with alternative sugars. I really love Pilsbury sugar free mixes and I use them as a spring board for baking different desserts. I added cherries, coconut and a few extra things to give this a yummy flavor. My sugar free doesn't mean fat free! I hope you enjoy it.
