Tasty Tuesday: Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

Margaret shared this strawberry dessert... & I can vouch that it's so super-good. YUM.

The Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
  • 4 1/2 tbsp white sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese
  • 1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 (6 oz) package strawberry-flavored gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 (16 oz) package frozen strawberries or 4 cups of fresh berries

The Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together pretzels, 4 1/2 tbsp sugar & melted butter. Press into bottom of 9x13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly toasted. Set aside to cool completely.

In a medium bowl, beat 1 cup sugar & cream cheese until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Spread evenly over the cooled crust. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.

In a medium bowl, stir together gelatin mix & boiling water. Mix in frozen (or fresh) strawberries & stir until thawed. Pour over cream cheese mixture in pan. Refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 1 hour.
