Wow! These are so good! I made these for Thanksgiving and they were a perfect addition. The acid in the lemon juice was a welcome compliment to all of the other rich foods; the stuffing, potatoes and gravy and the yams. It acted as essentially a palate cleanser. Not to mention they are absolutely delicious! I will be making these often as well as becoming a staple at our Thanksgiving table :)
