Preheat the oven to 325. Cut 14 small slits into fat on the lamb.

Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes per pound or until a meat thermometer reaches 175. Prepare glaze while lamb is baking; combine 4 glaze ingredients and heat for 3-5 minutes. Spoon glaze over lamb during last 30 minutes of baking time. Remove lamb from the oven, allow to sit in pan for 10-15 minutes. Baste with pan juices.
