You can have your cake and eat it guilt-free with these taste-tempting treats. The petite graham cracker “crust,” chopped fresh berries and cream cheese frosting offer all the goodness of cheesecake in manageable portions.—Jill Drury, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
"I first tried this special dessert one day when I was expecting company and wanted to serve something other that strawberry shortcake," recalls Linda Lamy of Mason, New Hampshire. "The berry mixture makes such a pretty filling and frosting...and it's an easy way to dress up a purchased pound cake."
"We love strawberries and chocolate at our house, so I developed this fudgy, fruity torte out of two others we’ve enjoyed in the past. Fresh raspberries, along with raspberry cream cheese and yogurt make tasty substitutes in this delightful, impressive dessert," says Pat Stewart from Lee’s Summit, Missouri.
I created this dessert one Saturday when my daughter's friends dropped in. It was a hit, and word spread through the high school. It has been renamed "Amber's Dad's Good Stuff." —Frankie Allen Mann, Warrior, Alabama

When I need a cake for a special occasion, this is my go-to recipe because everyone is crazy about it. Every year I make it for a cake raffle we have at work for Relay for Life. It has raised a lot of money for a very good cause.—Tammy Urbina, Warner Robins, Georgia
