"This is so good!! I don't always use the lemon peel. I want to try this with orange."

"quick, easy and umm so good! I may try this next time without the lemon peel and use almond extract & water in the icing rather than lemon juice for a different twist!"

"Even better than you think it would be! So easy. It tasted fresh and bright with the fresh lemon. I love using walnuts for the omego 3 benefit. I used a smaller can of biscuits and reduced the other ingredients to reflect that. We are still nibbling on it, it should be all gone in an hour or so! I'm thinking how yummy orange, lime and grapefruit varities would be. I served this with orange strawberry sippers, spicy bacon twist(i reviewed these too) and eggs. It was the best breakfast I'd made maybe ever!"
