Well, it's 10:30 at nite, and I just had a little piece of this wonderfully creamy dish. Did someone say...diet! It's a good thing this is kinda lite. I did make a few small changes. I used a 9 inch pie plate and I diced the strawberries and put in about 3/4 cup with the pudding. The rest I put in a circle on the top. This was sooo easy...a good one to start a young teenager on the baking trail! Thanks for the sweets, sweetheart.
