MY REVIEW

I was asked to bring a diabetic-friendly dessert to a dinner party. This recipe is terrific and will definitely go into the repertoire! I added the finely grated zest of 1/2 a lemon and also increased the lemon juice to 1/3 cup as per other reviewers. I'm going to make it with less sugar, but it's easy and delicious.
