Cheryl Larson


2 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
3/4 cup melted butter
3 tablespoons sugar

8 ounce cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
9 ounce cool whip

2 small boxes of strawberry jello

1. Mix first layer ingredients together.
2. Put into large cake pan and press mixture down
3. Bake for 20 minutes at 350
4. Mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar and egg
5. Layer on top of cooled layer
6. Mix two boxes of jello according to box directions. Let jello set up half way then spoon on top of second layer. Do NOT pour the jello on as it will separate the second layer.
7. (I sometimes do the jello step first so the jello is ready by the time I have put the second layer on).

Personal Notes:
Can add strawberries or crushed pineapple to jello layer if you wish
