    1. Can you use Splenda in the pumpkin pie cups? (I’m thinking no, since you said granular, but I thought I’d ask.)

      • You can use Splenda! If you are using powdered Splenda, use the ratio of Splenda to sugar. If you are using liquid Splenda, the pumpkin filling may be thinner. If you are using the powdered version it will be slightly thicker. If you need to thin it out you can add a bit of milk. I hope this helps and you enjoy!

      It seems that your measurements are off. Does it require 1 Tablespoon=Tbsp, or tsp? You’ve got them all the same.
      Please help me out so I’m not wasting food. Tbsp or tsp? I’ve never seen 1/4 of a Tbsp so I’m assuming that one is a teaspoon??

      Thanks,
      Tiffany Smith

      • Hello Tiffany, I’m sorry you were having trouble with the measurements. For this recipe we wrote TSP to refer to teaspoon. You will need one teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, one teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a quarter teaspoon of orange zest. I hope this helps, thank you for reaching out! I’ll update the recipe to make it more clear.

    3. Mary Anne Cowen

      Hi If you are dairy free is there a sub for the cottage cheese? Thanks

      • Extra firm tofu would be a great replacement for the cottage cheese! Or, you could use your favorite dairy-free yogurt. I hope this helps and you enjoy the pumpkin pie cups!
