THIS IS SET UP IN 5 MINUTES BUT IS EVEN BETTER IF REFRIGERATED FOR A FEW HOURS.

COMBINE CRUMBS AND SPLENDA IN A BOWL. MELT MARGARINE IN MICROWAVE. MAKE A WELL IN THE CRUMB MIXTURE. POUR THE MARGARINE IN THE WELL AND BLEND WELL. PRESS INTO BOTTOM AND SIDES OF SPRINGFORM PAN OR PIE PAN.
Yikers, doesn't anyone notice the dangers in transfats (hydrogenated, partially or otherwise), especially for those at greater risk of really nasty endstage complications, like diabetics... ?
CoolWhip, do check the Ingredients list sometime. Margarine, generally wouldn't touch it with a bargepole
but therre are now available transfat free margarines, or a healthful substitute can be easily made...
BTW, I've never seen FF Cream Cheese anywhere around here, what's holding it together? I'd love to know...
