    I followed the cheesecake portion exactly, but used blackberries, blueberries, and golden kiwis. I added some strawberry sauce that I had made for another recipe and topped with more whipped cream. The cheesecake was so light and fluffy. It was surprisingly easy to make and everyone thought they were beautiful.  -  21 May 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    When some cooks start their review by saying "if I could I would give this 10 stars..", I roll my eyes thinking, drama people. Well, I am one of those poeple now. I wish I could rate this more than 5 ! I made no changes and it was a such treat. I still have more than half a box of pecan shortbread cookies to use up. I will be making this again, soon for sure.  -  21 Aug 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
