Raspberry Delight Recipe

Publisher Photo
When I was a young man, I taught in a one-room schoolhouse and lived in the bachelor's quarters. At lunchtime, I'd often trade my store-bought cookies for the students' homemade goodies. Of course, nothing tastes as good as homemade, and that inspired me to do more cooking for myself. Pretzels are the surprising "secret ingredient" in this tasty dessert.—Warren Knudtson, Las Vegas, Nevada

MY REVIEW

"This dessert was a hit at a potluck recently. Too bad there's no photo to go with the recipe. It's beautiful, especially after serving the first piece, then you can see all the layers. I could only find 12 ounce packages of frozen raspberries at the store, but it still turned out great. I recommend really making sure the cream cheese and sugar are super smooth, before folding in the Cool Whip in three increments to avoid any lumps. I'm going to try making this with low fat and sugar ingredients next time and see if it turns out as good. Very tasty!"
