A bit of work but worth it though we couldn't wait till it was properly cooled! I used canned strawberries (fresh were out of season & too expensive) and didn't add sugar. Base was a bit soggy. I loved it but hubbie didn't (though he had it properly cooled) so unfortunately wouldn't make again. - 4/26/07
