Reviews for Frozen Strawberry Shortbread Dessert
"Had a great flavor--especially the crust. The problem was how solid it was. Guests could not hardly cut through the dessert. It msde it very difficult to eat. Perhaps because I used fresh strawberries and cut them thin? Not sure. I won't be making it again. dessert for Easter dinner was a let down."
"Great tangy strawberry dessert, also good with a graham wafer crust."
"LOVED IT. easy to make. You can also put the leftovers back in the freezer to store for another time. If there are any leftovers. : )"
"Definitely a crowd pleaser!"
"Substitued 2 cups of frozen whole unsweetened raspberries, well drained after thawing, instead and reduced the sugar to 1/2 a cup. Not bad, but next time will try the strawberries and maybe reduce the sugar as it seems a lot!"
"This recipe is easy, affordable, and delicious. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing"
"We loved this-it was easy and could be made ahead of time and was so pretty. Thanks."
