Reviews forCool and Creamy Raspberry Delight
"I recently made this for my quilt group and everyone loved it and wanted the Recipe! I cut the sugar in the filling just a tad so it sets up better at high altitude, where I live. A real winner for the ladies!"
"AMAZING! This is simply fantastic. I always get tons of compliments."
"This is so good! I make it with strawberries instead of raspberries though."
"This is a great dessert! I have made it a couple of times."
"SIMPLY the best! Each and every time I serve this tasty treat everyone wants the recipe...I will be making this for years to come! XLNT!!!!"
"This is now a family favorite! My mom asks for it all the time and we seem to always have it. Awesome recipe!"
"This was FABULOUS. I thought it might be a touch seedy from all the raspberries, but it wasn't. My mom doesn't like raspberry but this can be made with other fruits/gelatins (like strawberries)."
"I made this today for company, it was wonderful. No leftovers, darn it. Will definitely make it again."
