Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

I've had three people who have emailed me after reading an earlier blog post, and want the recipe for the Strawberry Pretzel Dessert that I made for my daughter's birthday. Here it is

Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

Bottom Layer:
2 cups crushed pretzels (I crush them by rolling a glass over a ziploc bag of pretzels)
1 tblsp. sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
Pour melted butter over pretzels and sugar and mix well. Press on bottom of 9 x 13 pan and bake 8 minutes at 400 degrees. Cool

Middle Layer:
1 (8oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
8 oz Cool Whip
Mix and spread over cooled pretzel layer.

Top Layer:
6 oz. strawberry gelatin
2 cups boiling water
2 10 oz pkgs of frozen strawberries
Mix the gelatin in the 2 cups of boiling water stirring until well dissolved. Add the two pkgs of
strawberries and stir often. When it is about 75% gelled, pour over cream cheese layer and chill dessert until ready to eat. The gelatin will thicken quickly since the berries are frozen.

This is so good. The pretzels take on a roasted pecan taste and it is a nice summertime dessert!
