"This is delicious with mixed berries. I didn't have any sour cream so I used plain Greek yogurt as a substitute and it turned out lovely."
"Delicious!! But I have to confess I used frozen blueberries instead...it still was great! I will be trying blackberries next time!!"
"Yum! Yum! Yum! Red raspberries are good, too, but you need to double the amount of sugar. I had no heavy cream, so I used just nonfat sour cream and added a little water to make the right consistency. It still came out nice and light."
"I used strawberries, blueberries, & peaches to equal 6 cups of fresh fruit. Also used 1/2 tsp of cinnamon in place of lime zest. Delicious."
"Blackberries are expensive in my region (New England) yet blueberries are in abundence during the summer months so I substituted blueberries. My family freaked. This recipe was easy and delicious. Nobody could tell that it was a 'light' recipe. And yes, it is more like a light biscuit dough which is a pleasant change of pace. Keep 'em coming! Thanks"
