Reviews for Lemon Berry Pie
"I ended up chopping up the strawberries and adding a bit of sugar, but with the cream cheese layer, it's sweet enough so you don't need to add sugar to the strawberries. I also sprinkled coconut over the top because we love coconut. It was a big hit for a dinner party."
