- 3/4 stick of melted butter
- 2 cups crushed pretzels
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 (8oz) brick of cream cheese
- 1 (12oz) tub of Cool Whip
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 boxes of strawberry jello
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 cup cold water
- 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Mix first 3 ingredients and press into 9x13 pan (Auntie M uses a big Pampered Chef baker). Bake pretzel crust for 6 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow to cool completely! (I think Auntie M puts the crust in the refrigerator to cool off)
Combine cream cheese, Cool Whip and 1/4 cup sugar. Spread cream cheese mixture over cooled pretzel crust. Place pan in refrigerator while making the jello.
Dissolve jello in boiling water. Add cold water and berries to jello. Allow jello to cool in refrigerator. When the jello starts to set pour it gently over the cream cheese layer. Refrigerate until firm and then top with pecans or nut of your choice.
PS- Today is Auntie M's birthday. Happy Birthday!! Wish I was there to
