    We loved this dessert!! I used a 12 X 12 pan instead of a 13 X 9, I only had 3 cups of strawberries. I also chilled the jello and strawberry mix until it was cooled slightly, Cooled cheesecake layer completely before adding third layer. Yummy!!??

    My family liked this, but I thought it was just OK. The crust is outstanding. The cheese layer needs to be thicker. I would consider doubling this layer. The jello layer was almost too sweet. I would decrease the sugar content in this layer. I will try it again with the above changes.

    I honestly don't know what to rate this recipe. I made it for my brother-in-law's birthday but didn't want to serve it -- in fact, when my husband brought it out, I warned everyone to sample it at their own risk. Everyone raved about the taste. Where the problem lies is with the directions. I followed the recipe exactly, but I too had problems with the two layers "melting" together into a big mushy mess, even after I made sure everything was cooled. It almost seemed as if the second "cheesecake" layer didn't set up enough, even though I didn't dare bake it any longer in the oven as the edges were starting to brown. IF I tried this recipe again, I think that I would try only 1 egg in the cheesecake layer to see if that would remedy the mushiness. Perhaps this didn't turn out due to my inexperience as a cook, but I guess I would give the recipe 5 stars based on taste but only a 2 or 3 for the actual recipe itself -- which doesn't even state to refrigerate in order for the strawberry/jello layer to set.

    I tried this recipe and when I poured the third layer onto the second layer and crust it melted everything together into a liquid mess. Maybe a step is missing. I always thought you had to chill jello in the fridge for hours to set it.
