I also used half the sugar called for, but I didn't think about the salt. Not only was it still too sweet - it was way to salty!

Quite tasty. The cinnamon-lemon flavor was different and delicious. VERY easy to make and wonderfully creamy too. I used 1/2 cup of sugar and it turned out a bit sweet for our tastes. I think it would be absolutely wonderful made less sweet but served with some berries poured over the top -- the same sort of thing you'd use for a shortcake.
