MY REVIEW

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.
