pretty good needed to bake longer.
I wonder what a little bit of lemon zest would taste like?
Been making these for years - they are great and everyone loves them. Quite often sprinkle a little sugar over the top before cooking. I also add different extracts for a change. Very easy and they freeze well.
Great recipe. I always add a dash of almond extract for a bit of extra flavor. But I've been making these for years.
