I have made a similar recipe for years but decided to try this one because it used a lot less sugar. It turned out great, easy to make and the family loves it. This will become the recipe I use from now on.

great flavor and simple to prepare. Again, a little freshly grated lemon zest, to bring out all the wonderful flavor! Thanks!
