Comments on this Recipe

This was really easy to throw together and I was so excited about it - until I took my first bite. It turned out too sweet and jammy for me. They berries were perfectly sweet and yummy before baking and the amount of sugar called for was just too much for the already sweet berries. I'm not an expert baker so I stuck with the recipe - next time I would use less sugar in the berry mixture.

I made this for a dinner party and all of my guests loved it! It is not hard to prepare and even the kiddos at the table could not get enough.

Couldn't believe how good this was given how simple it is to make.

Easy and delicious!

So easy to make, and very tasty!

Hi Again I'm in a chatty mood tonight I guess. I have recently become aware that white sugar is processed over something called bone char, the burnt bones of cattle carcasses. (yuk) it supposedly polishes the sugar and makes it whiter. anyway my vegan friends tell me they won't eat ANY white sugar at all, i haven't eaten it for a few decades myself, only because i heard a health pro waaaay back in the 70's on t.v. say it was worse for the human body than cocaine. anyway i hope you folks will pass the bone char info along, maybe that will get people off this product that is so detrimental to our health peace jj

Adding the 1/2 cup of water part is wrong. Use only a few drops, instead.

Hi, Can I use butter instead of "nonhydrogenated vegetable shortening" ?

Thought this would turn out great but not so much! Besides the fact that the Crisco made a weird taste to it (bad on my part I guess the Crisco was old) it was also very watery!

I loved this! I don't understand any of the negative reviews. I used coconut oil as a shortening substitute. My husband and I scarfed the whope pan- going to make it again tonight and add some apples as well.

this was very good, i also used coconut oil and less sugar it was delicious

I used vegan butter instead of "nonhydrogenated vegetable shortening”. I doubled the crumb mixture. I might have added less water to the crumb mixture. I used ½ store bought & ½ handpicked strawberries – tried using the less ripe handpicked strawberries to reduce the sweetness in the recipe. We seved with vegan vanilla ice cream, or fat free whipped cream for those non-vegan. It turned out good. I would make it again.
