Jessica,

Sugar Twin is a sugar Substitute. It comes in regular (like white sugar) and Brown (like Brown Sugar)

Crystal,

I prefer to not use no fat/low fat products as I feel they are too processed and often have other ingredients added to them. Also they don't always behave the same way in baking as the real thing.

One way to get around the higher fat in cream cheese is to use Neufchatel Cheese. It has the same consistency but 1/3 less fat than regular cream cheese and it's real cheese.

You'll find it in the store next to the cream cheese.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Molly, I have found that some nonfat cottage cheese, etc... do have more sugar listed than the regular does in the ingredient lists. Crystal

Red,
Yes there is.
If it is not in your grocery store, then your local health food store will have it.

Now here's a question...is vanilla extract really legal? I happened to look at the ingredients...and it has corn syrup in it. At least mine does, and I've got both imitation and pure vanilla extract in my pantry.

"Pure" extract has no corn syrup.

It is an extract of vanila, only.
