"We liked the way these tasted. I gave it only three stars due to the time and difficulty filling the strawberries. Neither a spoon nor a pastry bag worked well ... again, very messy. I will keep the recipe and look in kitchen stores for something to use to fill the strawberries."

"A very delightful desert for a warm summer day. Cool and refreshing end to a meal. Not overly sweet."

"These are pretty to look at and taste good, too. I found the filling to be took thick to push through my Pampered Chef Pastry Decorator, so I thinned it with some half n half and it was still too thick. I think I will put some Cool Whip in the cream cheese mixture next time to make it easier to push thru the nozzle."

"These look lovely, not sure about the almond essence though. I'm going to make these with ' Philadelphia Sweet Chilli ' cream cheese, which also has pineapple and mango in. Topped with a sprinkling of ground pepper to bring out the flavour of the strawberry, should go well with some nice rose' wine."

"These were beautiful and delicious and were a hit on the dessert table at our church potluck. They would be lovely for showers or receptions or anytime a fancy-looking, delicious dessert is needed. I used chocolate sprinkles rather than grating chocolate -- much easier, and I thought it looked just as nice."
