Liked the flavor but my half and half curdled. Kept stirring and it came out of it but not sure why it happened. Only made half a recipe so maybe that was it or using fat free half and half.

This was quick and easy. Tasty, too. I didn't use nearly the amount of butter it called for, but it was very rich anyway.
