This cool and creamy no-bake dessert is perfect for hot summer days. I sometimes replace raspberries for half of the blueberries to make it look more patriotic.—Jodie Cederquist, Muskegon, Michigan

"I made this for Easter dessert and the entire 9x13 pan was gone!! 6 adults and 1 child! It was delicious! The only thing I did differently was add the juice and zest of half of a lemon to the cream cheese mixture. I reserved a little bit of lemon zest for the topping as we'll! It was a hit! I would definitely make this again!"

"I made this for a party and it disappeared in minutes. Some people who don't even eat deserts had several pieces. I added extra lemon juice because I wanted more flavor. A big winner."

"Made as directed then again with some added fresh lemon juice. Much better with lemon juice. Making now with splenda and sugar free jello. Hoping it turns out OK."

"What a wonderful dessert! I added more blueberries, as one cup wasn't enough for a 13x9" pan, plus I made a design on the top using more blueberries to add to the presentation. Now, if you'll excuse me, I've just talked myself into another serving :)"

"I made this for a party at work and it went over great! When I made this, I used two (2) premade graham cracker crusts instead. Made it easy to transport and I didn't need to worry about getting my container back."
