I made this using some of my strawberry bounty. It is a great summer dessert! I only used a little bit of the crumb base and topping (only because I overcooked it). Next time I'll watch it a bit more closely and use it all. I like the little bit of crunch it adds. I also left out the nuts due to personal preference. Thanks for the yummy dessert!

This recipe is very, very good! I too made the filling the same way another reviewer did. I whipped the egg whites, set aside, & then the whipping cream, set aside. Then I folded in the berries as I was mixing the two of them together. I also eliminated the nuts (allergies) and instead of white flour I used whole wheat flour, delicious!! My whole family loved it!

This tastes like a cloud. Very fluffy & light. I really like the nuts in the crumb mixture. I used pecans & finely chopped them. I made the filling a tiny bit differently. I whipped the egg whites & the whipping cream (separately) first then folded in the berries as I was mixing them together. Thanks Pamela for a great recipe and I like the idea of having a dessert made & in the freezer.
