Strawberry Cream Dessert Recipe

Strawberry Cream Dessert Recipe

This fluffy creation is a variation on two recipes - a delicious four-layer dessert my mom used to make and a gelatin pie I came up with one day when I was short on ingredients. My family just loves it! -Rachel Lynn Rioux, Lisbon, Maine
