How do I bake sugar-free desserts?

Dear Baker:
I am trying to make a low calorie sugar-free dessert. Can you help? Thanks. --iVillager christine557


Dear christine557:
Not all recipes translate well, but in most cases you can take a regular recipe and substitute the sugar with a sugar substitute, except in those recipes that call for creaming the butter and sugar together. Substitute granular sugar with a granular sugar substitute. Substitute a liquid sugar with a liquid sugar substitute.
