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

"I've made this many times before and have changed it just a bit. I use sugar-free gelatin, lite cool-whip, lite yogurt, fat free cream cheese. I noticed this decreased the super sweetness from the original. We love it!"

"Very good. I doubled the cream cheese filling and only used a 6 oz. container of yogurt."

"Delicious! The only recommendation is that I would make more of the cream cheese layer, so there would be enough to cover the crust."

"My family loved this & can't wait for me to make again. I did modify this a bit. I used orange gelatin & yogurt. We call it Orange-Creamsicle Dessert. The crust I changed the sugar to 4 Tbl. & 1 stick of butter. The cream cheese layer I added 1/2 cup whipped topping & the orange layer I cut the whipped topping to 4 3/4 cups. I'm sure the strawberry is great but the orange is a different twist & so yummy!"

"I guess I'm too picky or too old, but this was too sweet. It was fluffy and fairly easy to make. I saved 2 tablespoons of the bottom layer of crumbs for the topping, omitted the top layer of Cool Whip, and substituted blueberry yogurt and berry blue jello for the strawberry. The cream cheese amount needs increasing to fully spread over the bottom crumb layer."
