MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 15, 2014

"Made this exactly as called for. Sour cream just sat as a blob on top of the base and added nothing to the flavor of the dessert. The dish LOOKED nice, but really just a cheesecake square with a side of strawberry jello. I don't think the topping was at all taste compatible with the base. For this reason, I would not make it again."

"I made this last 4th of July. Was a big hit with family and friends. Will definitely make again!"

"Went over very well at a recent potluck. I did use gluten free vanilla wafer crumbs rather than graham cracker crumbs. I ended up using frozen strawberries, and it worked out fine, but the fresh berries would be the best."

"Great dessert. The jello soaked into the cheesecake layer, so it wasn't as pretty but it tasted great."
