I loved the idea of the fresh berries in it, but it is definitely not sweet enough just making it by the original recipe. If I make it again, I will sweeten it up!

Even though my coworkers loved it, I found the filling not sweet enough. I used probably more than 1/4 c of powdered sugar and about 1/4 c condensed milk with vanilla yogurt and cream cheese but didn't feel it was to my desired sweetened taste. I think the strawberry glaze helped it out. Then I tried TrudyBell's recipe and it was much better.

I changed the filling to make it sweeter. 3 8oz packs of cream cheese, 1 large box of vanilla instant pudding, about one cup of milk, and 1 teaspoon of almond extract.

Could you use canned pie filling? I somehow have 2 cans of cherry pie filling in the pantry....

This sounds really good. I would add a little confectioner sugar to sweeten it a bit, but not too much. Also with the strawberry glaze, you can take the fruit mixture, cook them down a bit and add some cornstarch mixed in water first, and mix it in the fruit mixture until thickened and this will make your own glaze. Go on line and look for homemade strawberry glaze.

Phoebe, you should be able to find strawberry glaze in the produce section, near the strawberries. Makes for a great, easy stawberry pie too. I live in Ireland where we do not have strawberry glaze, but I'm going to try this substituting strawberry jam, melted. Hope it works.

Have never used a glaze. Is it a canned product?

this is a good recipe..if you want it sweeter, try mixing in some sweet condensed milk in addition to yogurt, it keeps the density of the base also

I make another fruit tart and instead of using yogurt I mix the cream cheese with instant vanilla pudding mix and some milk. It is delicious and really tasty. Much sweeter - almost like bavarian cream.
