MY REVIEW

By replacing the flour with 1-1/3 cups Gluten Free all-purpose flour and adding 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum, this recipe easily adapted to my gluten free diet. A great summertime treat!

This was a real hit with everyone! That orange peel in there added just the right "zing" and lifted it from "fine" to "fantastic".
