I had to improv quite a bit...spilt lemon juice and orange peel instead of lemon peel and nutmeg instead of mace and vodka instead of ice water (not necessary, but keeps things from sticking together) It turned out wonderfully! There aren't any instructions for the crust, so I hoped that I had it right, but all was well in the end.
