- 2 (3 ounce) boxes strawberry gelatin
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1 (16 ounce) container frozen sliced sweetened strawberries, thawed
- 2 cups crushed pretzels
- 1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, melted
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 (8 ounce) tub whipped topping
Preheat oven to 350oF.
Spray a 13×9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in strawberries. Cool in freezer while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
In 13×9-inch baking dish, mix the crushed pretzels, sugar and melted butter. Press evenly into the bottom of the dish. Bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on cooling rack.
In a second medium bowl, mix the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Gently fold in cool whip.
Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over partially cooled crust, making sure to reach the edges completely to prevent the strawberry gelatin mixture from seeping to the bottom.
Next pour partially cooled strawberry gelatin topping over cream cheese filling.
