1 c. crushed mini pretzels
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter or margarine, melted
1 - 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
5 T. sugar
1 - 8 oz. container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 - 6 oz. package raspberry jello
2 c. boiling water
1 - 8 to 10 oz. package frozen raspberries
1 - 16 oz. sour cream
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. chopped pecans (optional)

Combine pretzels, sugar and melted butter. Press into a greased 9 x 13 glass pan. Mixture will be crumbly. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool completely. Stir together jello and boiling water until dissolved. Add raspberries. Chill until partially set, about one hour. In another bowl beat softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla at low speed until sugar dissolves. Fold in whipped topping. Carefully spread over pretzel layer. Spread jello/raspberry mixture over this layer. Chill 8 hours or until set. Stir together sour cream and sugar. Spread over jello layer. Sprinkle with chopped pecans if desired. You may substitute frozen strawberries with strawberry jello. This salad is always a big hit at pot lucks!
