My family enjoys this dessert anytime of the year, but it's especially refreshing during the hot months. You can use whatever fruits are in season. —Ida Ruth Wenger, Harrisonburg, Virginia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 15, 2013

I have made this recipe several times now for work, every time I make them the employees yell at me for only making 2 (for a total of 10-12 employees) and I have been told that usually 2-3 didn't get any. I go in at 3pm the 1st one is usually gone by 4pm and the second one by 5:30 pm

MY REVIEW

This recipe was delicious. However, I did not make the crust. Instead, I used a roll of sugar cookie dough, that I pressed with a rolling pin out onto a 12' pizza pan. I baked it for about 16 min or until the edges got slightly brown. It was just the right mix of sweetness!

MY REVIEW

This was a big success, quite tasty. I streamlined it by using a long refrigerated sugar cookie roll for the crust. It still was very good, saved me some time. I tried to follow the picture, and the result was outstanding. Lots of compliments!
