I am disappointed there was no nutritional value listed. I like to know the sugar and carb content and then I know where to make changes or not.

This recipe was ok, pleasant but not amazing. I doubled it, which used all the lemon curd. The recipe is quite expensive, between buying the lady fingers and the dessert wine (I didn't use Sauternes, just another dessert wine suggested by the wine store owner), and I'm not really sure it's worth it. It's lemony but not quite as lemony as I like.
