For our family New Years Day get together my mom made a perfect Strawberry Pretzel Dessert...even the gluten eaters went back for seconds it was that good!! Since there were several likes of the picture I posted on FaceBook, I asked her to do a guest blog post, and share her recipe.
My mom isn't too Internet savvy, and never read a blog (other than mine) -so, her goes her post!
I remembered that the Strawberry Pretzel Dessert was one of Melanie's favorites before her Celiac Diagnosis, and going GF -so, I revised the recipe. It's a really easy dessert and so yummy. No one realizes it's GF!😉
1 and half bags of gf pretzels (used Snyders of Hanover) chopped/crushed
3/4 C melted butter
1 Tbsp sugar mixed & pressed into 9x13 glass pan.
Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes &
Cream one 8 oz cream cheese & 1 C sugar.
In separate bowl beat 1 pint whipping cream & 1 tsp vanilla until fluffy.
Then blend the two mixes together.
Spread over cooled pretzel crust.
Chill layers while jello mixture is made and thickens (approx 40 mins).
TOP LAYER: Jello Mixture
Dissolve 6 oz strawberry jello & 2 Cups boiling water. Add 10 oz frozen strawberries. Chill until thick then spread over whipped cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
