Can you help?" Our Test Kitchen lightened up her original recipe for this healthier version that tastes even more delicious than the original. How sweet is that?

Another reader, Kaye Buckley, from Springfield, Massachusetts loves this recipe and was wondering if we could do a makeover on it. Without being able to see a noticeable difference in flavor, our team cut over 50% of the fat, and more than a third of the calories. Enjoy!
