Delicious on cheesecake with friends last night! Added some extra cornstarch to thicken it more. It was a hit!
It had an overall good taste but I can't give it 5 stars because no matter how long I let it cook it got bubbly but never thick at all.
Used Splenda, thickened with Guar Gum, and added a tsp of Almond Extract. Was the hit of the pork roast.
