Mama of 10 trying this out today. I am chopping rather than shredding, omitting the nutmeg, and using half the sugar due to family preference. But am super excited to try it out. Thanks for sharing

Monica, after the first batch, I edited the recipe to eliminate the sugar altogether. It was totally unnecessary! I hope you enjoyed making it!
