Strawberry Pretzel Dessert
-- About half an hour
2 cups crushed pretzels
3 tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup softened butter
8 ounces cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 cup Cool Whip
Can of 24 oz. Pie Filling
Crush pretzels. I like to use the can of pie filling, because itís heavy and Iím lazy.
They donít need to be pretzel particles. I like them sort of big so they crunch.
Mix in 3 tbs sugar and softened butter. I soften my butter in a mug in the microwave.
Spread onto bottom of 9-by-13-inch baking pan.
Press down and spread evenly with spoon.
Bake in 400-degree oven until lightly browned, 6 to 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Thoroughly mix cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and Cool Whip and spread over crumb crust when it has completely cooled.
Top with pie filling.
A lot of people use a jello mixture with fruit, but that gives it an airy jello taste that I donít like.
The pie filling is less held-together, but more delicious in the long run.
Refrigerate until firm before cutting into squares pointlessly and eat the entire thing in one sitting.
