    Alskann's Note:

    This is a delicious traditional Spanish dessert and is similar to cold custard, but creamier and with a hint of cinnamon.

      I did something wrong when cooking this custard, it didn't set. Tasted while it was still warm and it had great flavor, just didn't set. That is why it has 4 stars. The recipe sounded really good and easy to make, will try making it again and let you know how it went. Made for ZWTIII.
