Strawberry Pretzel Dessert Jars
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min. + chilling
I made this for a family bbq and it is incredible! It’s also a really flexible recipe: instead of sweetened frozen strawberries I used fresh, sliced strawberries that I sprinkled liberally with sugar, and I used powdered sugar instead of regular sugar in the cream cheese mixture (I didn’t measure - just added it to taste). I also followed a previous poster’s advice and layered this in a 9x13 baking dish to save myself the busywork and dishes. It was a huge hit with kids and adults alike! Now I know what I’ll be bringing to future potlucks. Thanks for the great recipe!
In place of the pretzel crust I have used graham cracker crumbs or Oreo crumb mixture. Kelly; in the directions it's mentioned that 4 oz jars where used. Easier to layer the filling by using the wide mouth jars. I like doing the individual 4 oz. jars. I have also switched out the pkgs, of frozen berries for the canned pie filling. I haven't done so, but I'm sure you could also layer this in a nice glass bowl or glass cake pan if you wanted. to. For a bit of extra flavor, I have added almond extract to the whipped topping / cream cheese mixture.
Tried the recipe as printed, then did a change to raspberries and french vanilla pudding. We liked that better.
