I just made this and I can vouch that it came out perfectly! Follow the directions (it's not hard and it's fast too) and you can't go wrong.

It's not the healthiest recipe since it calls for 4 ounces butter and 4 ounces heavy cream. I'm going to experiment with using olive oil and low fat milk and see how it goes. My mom swears adding a dash of honey makes up for not using butter and heavy cream.
