Ingredients

PRETZEL CRUST

  • cups Pretzels crushed
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 8 tablespoons Unsalted Butter melted

CREAM CHEESE FILLING

  • 8 ounces Cream Cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip thawed in the fridge

STRAWBERRY TOPPING

  • 6 ounces Strawberry Jell-O
  • 1 lb Strawberries sliced and hulled
  • 2 cups Boiling Water

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400℉ and lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray or oil.

PRETZEL CRUST

  • In a medium bowl stir together the crushed pretzels and sugar. Pour in the melted butter and mix until the ingredients are evenly coated. Firmly press the pretzel mixture into the prepared baking dish in an even layer. Bake for 10 minutes and let cool completely.

CREAM CHEESE FILLING

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Using a rubber spatula gently fold in the cool whip. Spread evenly over the crust and cool in the fridge for 30 minutes.

STRAWBERRY TOPPING

  • Place dry Jell-O in a medium bowl and pour in the boiling water. Stir until the Jell-O is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in the strawberries and pour over the cream cheese layer. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until the Jell-O layer is completely set.
