I served this for a luncheon and my friends are still nagging me for the recipe. Instead of store-bought strawberry glaze, I made my own, using 1 cup of strawberries, mashed, 1 cup of water, 11/2 tsp. cornstarch, and about 3/4 cup sugar. Brought to a boil then pushed through a sieve. Then, cool. I then followed EINNA68's directions for serving, except I drizzled some chocolate sauce on top. To make the sauce, just melt some chocolate chips in the microwave, then stir in whipping cream to the desired consistency. I like to decorate the dessert plate with this--put it into a squirt bottle and squirt your design onto the plate. Don't forget to save a few whole, perfect strawberries to use as garnishes. And get ready for those friends to start nagging!

This is pretty good, but I feel like it's missing something--Maybe next time I'll try addding lemon juice to the filling. I'd also like to cut down on the powdered sugar next time as it seems to take away from the cream cheese flavor and as a little too sweet for my taste.

This recipe is top notch, however, I did add 3/4 cup of sugar to the crust recipe. It makes the crust taste like shortbread cookies and is a great improvement. I have tried it both ways. Other than that this recipe is excellent.

This is a great recipe. I've always made it with a graham cracker crust (no baking!) And I layer the cream cheese layer, strawberries and top with more whipped cream. DELICIOUS!

Excellent recipe! I did make a few alterations, however. I used a graham cracker crust, 1 cup of confectioners sugar, and an 8 ounce container of whipped topping. Also, I made my own strawberry glaze by heating 1 cup of cut up strawberries, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup water mixed with cornstarch. Then I removed the pan from heat, and I added a tbspn butter and 2 tsps lemon juice.

We really liked this recipe except for the crust. It had way to much butter and when it was cooled it was imposible to get out of the pan.

A very good recipe, very tasty. I think the secret to the crust is not allowing it to brown, I only baked it for 9 minutes and it came out perfect.

I made this for a fundraiser and it sold out in minutes. Made a second one and the same thing went right away. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
