Top Review by Tinkerbell

Excellent flavor! I used Mexican vanilla and only white sugar on top, as we've experimented with brown sugar mixtures in the past and prefer the white only, but the whole family really enjoyed this recipe. Thanks for posting, Momaphet! Made & enjoyed for Photo Forum's National Dessert Month. :)
