"First of all thank you for this recipe! This was always a favorite when my sister and I were growing up. Mom used pecan sandie cookies for the crust because she was allergic to walnuts. Can't wait to make this for my sis!"

"I have made this dessert for years. It is a family favorite and a great dessert on a hot summer day.

I have subsituted peanuts for walnuts, brown sugar Splenda and white sugar Splenda (both for baking) over regular, used 2 cups of fresh strawberries over frozen, and Lite Cool Whip (8 oz) in place of the whipping cream with great success."
