I threw this together last night. I was out of sweetened condensed milk and out of evaporated milk so I tried this and it was just as good!

Didn't have a lemon peel, but it still turned out great. I prefer it to be a little less sweet and thicker but that's is a easy fix and personal taste. Definitely worth making on a cold night. Great and easy recipe.
