My Sicilian family loved this. It was like a taste of the Caribbean in our home. I made it at Christmas time and served along with our traditional desserts like cannoli and tortoni and it was STILL a favorite. Now, to Italian people that is major!....Tanti complimenti. Grazie La Lechera....Buonissimo!
