Sugar Baked Pecan Citrus

Sugar Baked Pecan Citrus is a genuine dieter's dessert. Don't be put off by the word sugar in the title. This is a quick to make and delightful to eat dessert recipe. There is no reason why dieters should not reward their efforts from time to time. I have always been a firm believer that most things are acceptable, providing they are taken in moderation.
