"I served this dessert 4 times and it was a hit each time.

I only used 2 tablespoons of sugar, served it over chunks of angel food cake and topped it off with Mixed Berry Gelato."

We made this with splenda instead of sugar to reduce calories even more. It was wonderful!"

"This person did not post this recipe today. It is put on the board by the administration and so they will not get your message. I'm sorry. My son and his family live in Helsinki. He cooks American more than Finnish. They do love the fish there. "
