Ingredients

Topping

  • 2 packages (4-serving size each) Jell-O® strawberry-flavored gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 boxes (16 oz each) frozen sweetened strawberries, thawed

Crust

  • 2 cups pretzels, crushed
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons sugar

Filling

  • 1 container (8 oz) Cool Whip frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in strawberries; refrigerate until partially set, about 1 hour 45 minutes.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 350° F. In medium bowl, mix Crust ingredients. Press into ungreased 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Bake 10 minutes. Cool on cooling rack.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat Filling ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spread over cooled crust. Cover and refrigerate until cool and gelatin topping in bowl is partially set.
  • 4
    Carefully spoon gelatin topping over filling. Refrigerate 4 to 6 hours or until firm. To serve, cut into 4 rows by 3 rows.

  • It helps to set up the gelatin and strawberry mixture by putting it in the freezer for a bit. You don’t want it to set completely, but just a little to make it easier to spread.
  • You can spoon additional whipped topping on top, if desired.
  • Is strawberry not your jam? Try Raspberry Pretzel Salad instead for a slight twist on Strawberry-Pretzel Salad.
  • Cool, fruity and no oven necessary make our recipe for Fluffy Strawberry Pie with Pretzel Crust irresistible. Keep the berry and pretzel flavors coming!
