"This is wonderful....I used fat free half & half instead of heavy cream and cut the butter to 2 T. I think it's wrong to give a bad review just because of the calorie/fat's not fair to the person who has submitted the recipe."

"Wouldn't even consider making it with that many calories per serving. If the heavy whipping cream was replaced with non-fat evaporated milk suspect it would be just as good and a whole lot fewer calories!"
