4th of July dessert ~ perfect for a hot holiday. It is light and refreshing. The crust was different and delicious. I WILL be making again for Labor Day (and probably before that, too!) I used sugar free Swerve, a little less than called for and sugar free pudding. OH MY, everyone loved it, no leftovers! Highly recommend, delicious and easy to put together, ahead of time ~ a winner
I have made this for years with chocolate pudding. Some have mentioned using graham cracker crust instead but the best part of this dessert is the backed crust with the roasted pecans. It gives it a great flavor! I am making it for July 4th this year just like this recipe with vanilla!!
My Mom makes this for 4th of July every year but she didn't know where she got the recipe. I received this recipe in an email and thought it looked the same as my Mom's, and it is. Now I can make this every year. It is very good and it's loved by everyone.
I have made this dessert for years. It is always a hit and I love it because the only baking involved is in making the crust. I am going to try making it with a graham cracker crust as others have suggested.
What a yummy dessert and easy to make. The crust is so good. Everyone loved it.
Great recipe! I did follow someone’s suggestion of a graham cracker crust, only because it’s too hot to turn on my oven! :)
Sure Sarah! You could make it 2 or 3 days ahead, if you do be sure to put the berries on closer to serving time. Overnight would be fine but sooner might cause the strawberries to get too soft and maybe run.
Can you make this the night before?
