"I almost passed on this recipe because it seemed like a lot of ingredients & steps, but I'm really glad I gave it a try. The creamy bottom layer is so good & goes very well with the fruity layer. I will be adding this to my menu for Easter dinner."

"This is a great recipe and I have had many requests to make it again. I didn't change the recipe when I made it."
