    1. Oh yes, Tenderflake has some in the freezer section. While I make a mean pastry, these are so convenient and handy. Something I always have on hand!

  1. Yum! This recipe would work well using a cookie “pizza” base with the cheese and fruit too!

      1. It could also become a frosting for the cake. I’ll need to try this cream to see which of my cakes will go with it…

  2. my family is cheese cake crazy and this fast and easy one looks good. now just for clarification and I know the answer but to be sure the crusts are aready cooked?

  3. Ooooh, those look tempting! I think I’ll pick up the ingredients to make for the kids this weekend (and maybe one or two for Mom as well!)

  4. Made these & topped with mandarin orange slices, they were delicious! The only thing I noticed was that I had WAAAAAY too much “sauce” after filling a package of 12 Tenderflake shells. My kids just ate it out of the bowl this time but next time I’d make 24 shells with this recipe!

  5. They look so delicious. Would love to make these this summer for a quick and easy dessert

  6. I made these, but I used a gluten free tart shell. They were so awesome!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

  7. I always make these! They are absolutely delicious when topped with strawberries and blueberries!

  8. I’m sucker for anything with cream cheese (I love carrot cake for this reason!) This is a nice simple summer recipe to make with my daughter and yes she is excited. It will be awesome with some fresh strawberriers from our local berry farm.

  9. Wow – I just noticed that you are a Brand Ambassador for Philly Cream Cheeses and the Real Women of Philadelphia – I could never do that – I’d weigh a tonne at the end of my ambassadorship. I pinned this recipe…..

  10. A great summer dessert, piled high with fresh fruit. Thanks once again for sharing

  11. Thank you! Made these the other day using the small appetizer frozen shells(18) . You can pop the whole thing in your mouth! Big hit with everyone. A keeper for sure. I love the ease and taste of all your recipes that I have tried 🙂
