I knew this cool, fruit and creamy dessert was a winner the first time I tasted it. I confirmed that fact a few summers ago when I entered the recipe in a contest at work—it won first place. Co-workers still call to request it.

Sugar cookie dough makes a fun foundation for this fantastic fruit pizza. The tender crust complements the sweetened cream cheese and colorful "toppings". After you serve up the last slice, be prepared to make another pizza.
This thick and creamy dessert is my interpretation of my mother’s recipe for Swedish “Krem”. It has just a hint of almond flavor and looks spectacular with bright-red berries on top. Serve it in glasses to match the occasion. —Linda Nilsen, Anoka, Minnesota
Next time you get a pint or two of perfectly ripe strawberries, make my favorite pie. It combines fresh berries and a lemony cream cheese layer. If you’re in a hurry, use a premade pie shell. —Janet K Leach, Granger, Washington
This is the best ice cream we have ever found. It really tastes like frozen cheesecake. I like to make it in the morning and let it ripen in time for supper, but my husband usually can't wait that long!—Jacki Prettyman, Fort Scott, Kansas
When strawberry season arrives, folks who know me anticipate this flavorful fruity dessert. It's very pretty and always gets lots of compliments whenever I take it. —Amy Murdoch, Union Grove, Wisconsin
