Jason’s grandma Delores introduced me to this dish. She served it every Easter. I am not a huge fan of Jello ordinarily so I didn’t expect to like it all that well, but I loved it. In fact Grandma served it as part of the meal, but I liked it better than the desserts!
3 cups crushed pretzels (about 9 oz)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
Mix and press into a 9×13 pan. Bake 8 minutes at 350 degrees.
1 cup sugar
8 oz cream cheese
9 oz whipped topping
Mix sugar and cream cheese. Fold in topping. Spread over crust.
6 oz package Strawberry Jello
1 cup water
20 oz frozen strawberries
Dissolve Jello in 1 cup boiling water. Add frozen strawberries and pour over the second layer. Refrigerate.
Grandma passed away a few years ago. In her memory I serve her meal every Easter including her Strawberry Pretzel Salad dish. For a gift not too long after we were married my mother-in-law presented me with a small cookbook that included family recipes written in their own hand writing. It is something I cherish! Today I am sharing her recipe with you. It is one of my favorites.
