    What is the white layer in the pic? I thought it was cream cheese when I first saw it but apparently it's not.

    What a great choice for breakfast! It was delicious. With company coming, I wanted to make something extra special, and this fit the bill! The only change I made was to add some chopped nuts to the strawberry mixture. Great addition, if I do say so myself!

    Made this pretty much as given & we have A WONDERFUL STRAWBERRY DESSERT! Easy to make & great taste! So much better than a boxed mix! And, although it couldn't be better, I do want to try it as Susiecat too did, with the mixed berries, since I always have those in the freezer, too! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
