    Anita Harris's Note:

    Found this recipe in the April 2002 BHG Hometown Cooking magazine. I haven't tried it yet but it looks and sounds delicious! It's also suggested that you can make this with fresh peaches and peach-flavored gelatin.

      My family loved this recipe. I am rating this recipe five stars but I did make a couple of "tweaks". First of all, I only used 1 1/2 cups of powered sugar in the filling. After tasting the finished product, next time I try using 1 cup because I thought that it still was a tad too sweet. I would suggest to anyone that makes this recipe to only add 1 cup of powered sugar to the filling, taste it, and then add more if you'd like. I only ended up using about half of the jello topping. I tasted it and decided that it would make the dessert too sweet if I added the whole amount. I'm glad that I only used half because it was just enough to glaze the strawberries and that way the cream cheese layer was more dominant. Next time I may try reducing the amount of sugar in the jello layer as well. It was a very pretty dessert and the crust was fabulous!
