Auntie M's Pretzel Jello

I have this aunt, Auntie M, who is a fantastic cook. She has the magic touch. Everything she makes is delicious! When I visit she always makes her famous Pretzel Jello. I know, pretzels & jello... sounds weird, but it's super yummy!
What you need:
  • 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
What you do:
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 eat celebrate with you.

  5. علارقم اینکه همیشه شنیده ایم که در قانون حضانت (چه دختر و چه پسر) تا هفت سالگی با مادر است. حضانت فرزند دختر از 7 تا 9 سالگی و حضانت فرزند پسر از 7 تا 15 سالگی با پدر است. بهتر است به این موضوع توجه داشته باشیدکه در هر زمانی و در هر سنی که حضانت داده شده به مصلحت کودک نباشد، حکم می تواند تغیر کند.
