"This is a great summertime dessert that can easily be modified to suit ones tastes, I thought that 3/4 teaspoon ginger would be a bit strong, so I actually substituted 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg for a more subtle flavor. I also used shortbread cookies as that's what I had on hand."

"Very yummy! I used Rum Flavoring instead of Rum, however. It makes me think of some yummy desserts we have had in the Caribbean. Was a hit with my husband too!"
