My mom has made this ever since I can remember, and it's always a show stopper wherever I take it. I've tried it with blueberries and peaches too, and it's just as good. Substitute your favorite fruit for an out-of-this-world dessert.

I used this as a basis and did BOTH strawberry, layer of cream-cheese filling, then blueberry, then final layer of cream-cheese. It's for my sons pre-school graduation tonight and I'm willing to bet that it's a hit. I'll let you know, but just from taste-testing alone... let's just say I know what I'm having for my LUNCH!!!!
