Is anyone here using Stevia to sweeten their deserts, instead of sugar or artificial sweeteners?

There are several crafts you can do with paper shredder shreds, use it to stuff your creations or for paper dolls...

I'm hoping you get some posts here cause I'm also interested.
When DH was diagnosed with type two diabetes I went looking for alternative for deserts for him including buying a bottle of stevia.  I googled recipes tried it and it was awful.  Just no sweet taste at all.  I have since turned to Splenda when I can get it.

I haven't used Stevia, but I have used Splenda and the Splenda Brown Sugar mix in the past.  I only tried substituting those a couple times, though.  Be aware, that with those 2 at least, my cookies always puffed up A LOT more than with regular sugar/b. sugar, and the cookies definitely didn't taste as sweet as normal.  One suggestion I had heard to help with that was to to 1/2 the norm. sugar and 1/2 splenda, but idk. Good luck finding Stevia help! I'm also curious!

I made some peanut butter cookies that used part Stevia in the Raw and part Sugar in the Raw... They were pretty good. I got the recipe off the Stevia in the Raw website. http://www.steviaextractintheraw.com/Recipes-and-Tips.aspx

They have other recipes on there, but that was the only one I've tried.

Have y'all tried Xylitol? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xylitol  I think Stevia is fairly similar.  I'm not sure.  I haven't used Stevia that much.  But I like it.  I like Splenda too.  I haven't used any other sweeteners too much.  So I don't know which is best.
