My sister took pictures for me as she began making the dessert. I finished making the recipe, forgetting to take pictures of the final product. So I apologize for no final pictures, but trust me, it was good!
|Layer Two ingredients, creamed|
Strawberry Pretzel Salad
2 cups crushed pretzels
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) melted butter
3 tablespoons sugar
8 ounces softened cream cheese
1 cup sugar
2 cups Cool Whip
6-ounce package strawberry jello
2 cups boiling water
1 16-ounce package frozen strawberries
1 10-ounce package frozen strawberries
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. For crust, mix together ingredients and press into a 13X9 inch pan. Bake for 6 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
Mix softened cream cheese and 1 cup sugar. Fold in cool whip. Spread mixture over cooled pretzel crust.
Prepare jello with 2 cups boiling water. Add frozen strawberries and mix with jello. Pour jello over cream cheese layer and refrigerate several hours until firm.
To serve, cut in slices as you would a cake.
TIP! Lower fat Neufchatel cheese can almost always be substituted for full fat cream cheese in any recipe.
