    This was awesome!! I would say 1 tbsp of sugar would be plenty as well as only 1 tbsp of corn starch.

    It was easy and quick to throw together. Next time I wouldn’t add the cornstarch/water. It made it too thick.

    So good.
    Next time I will cut down on the sugar. The thickness was perfect.

    Flavors were delicious! It was just a bit thick after adding all of that cornstarch. I will definitely make this again but with maybe 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch and a little less sugar.
