    The first time I made this, I used a 15x10x1-inch jelly roll pan, but next time I think I'll try the 9x13. Just personal preference. Top with a dollop of whipped cream - Yummy!!

    This was a fabulous dessert! The flavor was divine and will be made often at my house. Made for French Tart's Rhapsody in Rouge! in the French forum.

    I made this in a 9x13 pan, which left the crust just a little thick for my personal taste, but this is a very good dessert. After slicing the strawberries I put a layer of them over the filling. Instead of making a glaze I bought Strawberry glaze ( produce section) and poured it over the strawberries. Next time I will make it in a 15x10 pan. Thank you for sharing this lovely dessert.
