We loved it. It is the same recipe I have made for years except for the fruit. I will make it again and with different fruit.
so easy and the whole family loves it ! it is make for more that the 4th of july .... love it !!
The whole family loved this. Requested it more often than 4th of July.
Fun and Yummy. I did change crust to a graham cracker crust (super easy 3 cups of crushed crackers, 1/2 cup butter, and 1/2 cup sugar)- which required no baking, turned out great. Very pretty for 4th of July! I will make again with different varieties of fruit on top for other occasions.
Very easy to prepare & holds up well. Good combination of flavors. A great "go to" dessert for any patriotic occasion!
