"I used low fat cream cheese and splenda...tasted great! Even my picky girls ate it up!"
"Excellent and so easy!"
"Great recipe! Tastes and looks good: I brought it to my Sunday School class, and it was a huge hit. Due to previous review info., I greased the pan to be sure the cookie wouldn't stick and had no problems. I didn't have almond extract either, so I used vanilla extract, and it was still wonderful!"
"This one definitely deserves a 5-star because of the simplicity, pretty presentation and yumminess! Made this for 4th of July BBQ and it was totally demolished!"
"I've made this for many years now for the summer holidays. I've changed the almond extract to lemon zest though. Sometimes I brush apple jelly that I've warmed in the microwave, over the berries. that makes them shiny very pretty."
"The cookie crust really stuck to the pan....have better recipes."
"I have made this recipe numerous times since it was first printed. I have never had a complaint other than next time, please make 2."
"I didn't have a pizza pan, so instead I used a muffin pan and made individual tarts. Unfortunately, that meant I couldn't make this design, so instead I chopped up the strawberries into pieces the size of the blueberries and just sprinkled the tops of each individual tart. They were a HUGE hit!Christina"
