Proper conversion of liquid sucralose instead of sugar?

Hello, I have a low fat recipe for a strawberry pie in almond crust. The recipe calls for 2 Tablespoons of liquid Splenda (sucralose) in the crust and 3 Tablespoons of liquid sucralose in the filling. I know that the liqiud sucralose is very concentrated, so this seems like an awful lot of sucralose. Could this be right or do they mean the equivalent of 5 Tablespoons of liquid sucralose, which would be considerably less. I'm new to cooking and need some help. Thanks.

  1. Oh, wow. Yeah, that seems super high. I use EZSweetz and this is their conversion -

    2 Drops = 2 Tsp Sugar = 1 Splenda® Packet. 12 Drops = 1/4 Cup Sugar (or 6 Splenda® Packets

    Not an exact apples to apples comparison but gives you an idea, maybe.

    1. Thanks so much for your reply. I will experiment with the smaller amounts first.
