Strawberry Pretzel Salad
This is a yummy side dish that always makes the menu at our holiday dinners. It adds the just right mix of sweet/salty, crispy/soft.
Crust Mix: 2 cups coarse crushed pretzels 4 Tbs sugar 3/4 cup melted margarine or butter 1/2 cup chopped pecans Spread in 9x13 pan. Cook at 400 degrees for 6 minutes.
Mix: 8 oz cream cheese (softened) 1 cup sugar 8 oz carton cool whip. Pour on top of crust when cooled. Spread. Refrigerate.
Dissolve 6 oz package of strawberry Jell-O in 2 cups of boiling water. Let cool in fridge for a few minutes then add: 2 - 10 oz pkgs of frozen strawberries (thawed). 1 small can of crushed pineapple (drained)
Chill until almost congealed. Spread on top of cream cheese mixture above. Return to fridge until ready to serve.
