Make a batter from the cream cheese and sugar. Now fold the batter in the whipped topping and spread it over the cooled crust of the pretzel.

Directions
Preheat the oven. Mix ½ cup of sugar and the crushed pretzels with the melted margarine. Place the mixture into the baking pan and bake for about 10 minutes.

Combine the cream cheese mixture and the whipping topping. Spread this mixture over the cold pretzel layer. Melt the strawberry jello and add it to the hot pineapple juice. Add the frozen strawberries to it and let it set partially. Pour this jelly over the cream cheese layer. Put in the refrigerator till the time of serving. Serve by cutting it into your favorite shape.

With Fresh Strawberries

Ingredients
  • Pretzels, (crushed) 2 cups
  • Strawberry gelatin, 2 packs
  • Sugar, ¾ cups
  • Fresh strawberries, (cut in the halves) 10 - 12
  • Butter, (melted) ¾ cups
  • Boiling water, 2 cups
  • Cream cheese, (softened) 1 pack

  • Lettuce
Directions
Take a bowl, mix the pretzel, ¼ cup of sugar and the melted butter. Spread it over a baking dish. Bake in a preheated oven at 350° F for 10 minutes. Let the pretzel mixture cool and then crumble it slightly. Don't let it cool down completely or else the mixture will stick together. Melt the gelatin in the boiling water and then add pineapple juice to it. Spread this mixture in a dish and keep it in the refrigerator to thicken. Fold the strawberries. Again refrigerate, till it becomes firm but do not allow it to set completely. Blend the cream cheese with the remaining ½ cup of sugar, until it attains a smooth texture. Pour this mixture evenly on the gelatin layer. Scatter the crushed pretzel pieces on top of it and press them slightly. Serve as a salad with lettuce or as a dessert.
