I usually don't write reviews but I was compelled to write one for this recipe. My family thoroughly enjoyed this! Let me say, as is, the recipe is great, I followed it exactly except I omitted the almond extract (my son has a tree nut allergy). I also put it in a graham cracker pie crust for a little extra crunch. It was wonderful and so easy!! Thank you, I will be making this again.
This was a big hit at the 4th of July BBQ & pool party with friends. I really enjoyed the use of cream cheese, as it gave the filling more substance & flavor than just whipped cream would have. Made exactly as written except I had to use all vanilla extract due to almond allergies. If I make it again just for my family we'll use the almond, as we are huge fans of that flavor. Thanks for sharing, Baby C!

I have always loved to cook. This got me into trouble with my wieght, because I loved to eat what I cooked. I am now a weight watcher, I have to lighten most recipes. My favorite cookbooks are Taste of Home & Taste of Home Light. MY pet peeve is boxed dinners. I do love simple and quick though. I have 3 grown sons, one is in last semester of college, one is married and a new baby is on the way, so I will be grandma in January. My daughter-in-law hates to cook, they order prepared food off the internet, that makes me crazy. ha. I love animals, but right now only have one dog. A bloodhound. She is so loveable, I would recommend this breed to anyone as long as you have patience, but they are one of the most loving breeds out there.My married son has 3 lab. retrievers,a baby will be easy after those 3 monsters, as I lovingly called them when they were pups. My oldest son has a Rottwieller. I have had 3 Rotts, they have all pasted, buy they are a really great breed. They are so smart and loveable, I guess that's why people who chose to make them bad, can do so, all they want to do is please their owners. My real passion is shoes, shoes, shoes. I also love jewelry, but shoes, shoes, shoes,!!!!! Update I am finally grandma to the prettiest baby girl ever. She was born on Jan. 15, her name is Mariah. She is perfect!
