This is perfect for a lunch or summertime dessert. Commonly found at enrichment evening. You'll love it.
- 1/8 cup sugar
- 2 cups crushed pretzels
- 1 1/2 sticks melted butter
Cream Cheese Layer
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 4 Cups cool whip
- 1 lg pkg Raspberry (or strawberry) Jell-O
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1 pkg FROZEN strawberries (or raspberries)
I like to mix the two. I usually do raspberry Jell-O and strawberries but you can mix it up, or keep just one flavor.
Mix crust ingredients together and press in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool completely.
Beat cheese mixture together and spread over cooled crust.
Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water. Stir in frozen strawberries. Place in bowl to congeal. Spread over cheese. (**I usually slice the strawberries and blend them in a blender before mixing with the hot water. This time I blended half and sliced half. You might just want them all sliced, which is easiest. It's up to you- although I think it's best if they are blended!)
Chill over night.
