"Delicious! Great combo and proportion of berries. The topping is light and kicked up a notch from just plain cool whip. I couldn't find meringue cookies (told they're seasonal at Christmas) so I subbed lemon (instead of vanilla, which would definitely work) wafer cookies which was great. Will be a summer staple for sure."

"I leave out the meringue cookies and I don't add sugar or lemon juice to the fruit. I've used this topping over any combination of fruit--whatever is in season. Countless people have asked for the recipe; its a favorite dessert at our house."
