* 3/4C butter melted
* 3T brown sugar
* 2 1/2C crushed pretzels
* 6oz strawberry flavored gelatin
* 2C boiling water
* 3C sliced strawberries, chilled
* 8oz cream cheese
* 1C sugar
* 8 oz container frozen whipped topping (make sure thawed)
2. melt butter and mix with brown sugar. mix in with crushed pretzels to form crust in 9X13 pan. bake for 10 min. must cool completely (set in fridge).
note: don't crush pretzels in original bag or you'll also get all the salt at the bottom of the bag. i just put the pretzels in my food processor. worked like a charm.
3. beat cream cheese and white sugar. when whipped cream is thawed, fold it in and then place on top of cooled crust layer. make sure you seal all the edges so when you put the jello layer on later, it doesn't leak through. stick in fridge while making jello for this layer to also set.
4. cut your strawberries in slices while you boil your water. take off heat once boiling and dissolve gelatin. then stir in strawberries. stick in fridge just long enough for it to partially thicken.
5. add gelatin later to whipped topping layer and then stick in fridge for at least 4 hrs for jello to set. soo good.
|This is an oldie but goodie. I don't know anyone who doesn't love this dish!|
|I have made this for years. We love it, but I don't use
all the sugar it calls for, and I use the strawberries still
frozen and just reduce the water in the jello. It sets up a
bit quicker. I have never heard of it as a
'side' though. It travels pretty well too (if you use a little
more pretzel it won't get soggy.) Just the right combination
of salty and sweet.
|Yum! This sounds good! Although I agree--how could this ever be considered a side? I guess how sweet potato casserole and jello salad could be a side...|
|Yummy! my sister makes this dish special when she knows I'll be there for the celebration!!! I love it!|
|Yeah, glad everyone agrees. It's in two recipe books as a side dish (they differ just a tad in measurements but I preferred this one), and when we went to a friend's house... it was served WITH the meal. Both Mr. J and I waited until after the meal to eat it. Her serving it though made me want to pull the recipe out.|
|I've never seen this, but it looks super yummy. I'll have to try it. I like sweet & salty together, too. I could make it with Splenda and it's perfect for me.|
|it looks more like an upside down cake to me|
