Like a mousse/custard! Since the crust seemed a touch plain, I added 1/2 tsp orange zest and a few drops of lemon extract. If it weren't for the fact that I've hidden the rest, it would be all gone! I love that it isn't too sweet as well. I did have to leave it in the oven about 5 mins longer that stated, but well worth the wait!

Another 5 star recipe from Sydney Mike. These were FABULOUS ! Excellent combined flavor with the orange and lemon. They were nice, and chewy. These were thoroughly enjoyed by all.
