    These are really simple to make, look fabulous and taste great. I was looking for various ways to use up a glut of frozen blackberries and this worked. The only tiny thing I would change for the inevitable 2nd batch is the amount of blackberries - the 300g was a bit too much to squeeze in for a batch of 6... or I could just make more i suppose Thanks for the recipe!  -  11 Sep 2011


    I made these as a quick dessert for an unexpected visit by friends. I as sceptical regarding the cream cheese but, They were delicious. I made them with frozen raspberries (it was January and getting fresh garden fruit at this time of year?) Anyway, I think I over filled them as they did rather explode, this didn't however reduce the enjoyment thankfully. I served them with cream or ice cream and were enjoyed by all.  -  20 Jan 2016
