I used to make this exact cake years ago. I do have a tip though... after you prep the crust... bake it for 10 minutes. Don't overcook it however as it will turn hard as cement, but the baked crust makes the dessert.

Good for a kids party but I wouldn't recommend it as an adult dessert. A little messy and not at all attractive when served.

Great! Just like the one Mom used to make, except without the raw eggs. I substituted Neufchatel for the cream cheese and added 1 tsp vanilla to the cheese/butter/sugar mix.

This is a very good recipe. I work for a hotel, the hotel has an evening social(serving food ) to the guest. I made this for them and they really enjoyed it. I will make this again... For the hotel and at home. Thanks for the great recipe.

Delish! Easy to make, I used a prepared graham cracker pie shells and made 2. I didn't have glaze but really didn't miss it. Also canned real whipped cream and Hershey's chocolate sauce. This will be a summer favorite, everyone loved it.

I have used this same recipe with one alteration. It is easier and less fattening. Rather than making a graham crust, just place a lyer of graham crackers in the bottom of the pan and make a day ahead and refridgerate. This dessert is also a great make ahead and freeze for unexpected social events. Love it!

This is a very good recipe. I didn't use the strawberry glaze, but used chocolate syrup and nuts on top like a sundae. It was a big hit with my family.

Thanks so much for sharing! I have been looking for an eggless version of this recipe! Changes: I used the canned whipped topping (instead of CoolWhip)to add to each piece just before serving AND I drizzled warm ganache (using the all recipes Pro Ganache recipe). I toasted pecans to throw on there, too. What a hit! This recipe will be made again and again!
