"This was delicious! If you like lemon, this was a perfect treat. I didn't have half and half on hand, so I substituted 1/2 cup whole milk and 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream. I also omitted the lemon peel because the lemons I used were home-grown and had a strong lemon flavor. I will definitely make this again!"
