Simple and delicious! I usually just eat these things cold with a bit of Splenda, but this was really nice change. I cut the grapefruit in half, cut it into sections and loosed it a bit. I added a bit of Land O Lakes light butter to the brown sugar along with some cinnamong and nutmeg. Very easy and very good!

I've made this since 7th grade. Our home economics teacher taught us, but it also had butter underneath the brown sugar.... Try that... it's even better!


This isn't going to be a helpful review at all. maybe I didn't put enough sugar on it or should have tried it with butter. But I did not care for this recipe.
