This is an easy and delicious dessert! I found the original recipe on a cooking site but changed it to suit my own taste and to make it lower in fat. I also decided to create a spiced drizzle for a topping! This all worked perfectly! This has become one of my favorite desserts because I love the flavor of gingerbread! The photo is my own.
