This strawberry delight is delicious with or without the crystallized ginger. It's perfect for spring or summer. It looks elegant, and tastes great, too. —Marie Rizzio, Interlochen, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2014

A very refreshing dessert. The fresh taste of the strawberries isn't overpowered by a lot of added sugar. I used 16 squares of cinnamon graham crackers in place of the gingersnaps, and omitted the 2 T. sugar in the crust. I solved the problem of the crust crumbling apart by simply baking the crust for 10 minutes at 350F (let cool before proceeding with the recipe). I was surprised that the recipe doesn't call for baking the crust ... of course it will fall apart if it's just crumbs patted in a pan! This recipe has a very lovely presentation, pretty enough for a special occasion. I will definitely be making this recipe again.

This turns out beautiful and tastes so good! The only quibble is that the crust doesn't stay together well when sliced so it is only pretty until you cut in. It disappeared FAST!
