Reviews for Cheesecake Strawberry Trifle
"This disappeared faster than almost anything I've ever made for my co-workers--a huge hit! I made a plain yellow cake (cubed/crumbled), used cheesecake flavored pudding mix, and frozen strawberries with a little bit of sugar added (couldn't find the pie filling, and I think it wold have been too sweet anyway)."
"I love this recipe. I usually add pound cake and make my own strawberry filling."
"I use cherry pie filling and it's a favorite with my family! Two days ago, I made this for a work picnic and won 1st prize in the desserts category! Love it!"
"Delicious and so easy to make. Next time I might substitute lemon pudding for the vanilla, just for a little change."
"I've made this recipe several times now and always use a different fruit! Our favourite so far is pineapple! YUM! It's a natural sweet instead of being too rich but it tastes decadent! I also used graham crackers instead of butter cookies as a variant. Looks awesome for presentation and everyone eats it right up!"
"I have made this recipe so many times. Its good in the summer or winter. My family loves it. I use graham crackers instead of butter crackers though."
"I LOVE this recipe. I use fat free dairy products to lower the calories, but doesn't change the taste! I also use graham crakers instead of butter crackers (just a personal preference). Definately a huge hit everywhere I take it."
"We made this for a church dinner and everyone loved it. I would highly recommend it. It is quick and easy, and very tasty."
