This is a cool and refreshing dessert. Strawberry flavor comes through in this fresh-tasting dessert with a nice chewy shortbread crust and crumbled topping. —Gayleen Grote, Battle View, North Dakota

"Had a great flavor--especially the crust. The problem was how solid it was. Guests could not hardly cut through the dessert. It msde it very difficult to eat. Perhaps because I used fresh strawberries and cut them thin? Not sure. I won't be making it again. dessert for Easter dinner was a let down."

"Substitued 2 cups of frozen whole unsweetened raspberries, well drained after thawing, instead and reduced the sugar to 1/2 a cup. Not bad, but next time will try the strawberries and maybe reduce the sugar as it seems a lot!"
