Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

This is my all time favorite strawberry dessert! I liked it so much as a child, that I requested this over a birthday cake every year! I have even made this with raspberries and raspberry jello.

Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

Bottom Layer:
2 cups crushed pretzels
3/4 cup butter, melted
3 tablespoons white sugar

Middle Layer:
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Top Layer
2 (3 ounce) packages strawberry flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
2 (10 ounce) packages frozen strawberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Stir together crushed pretzels, melted butter and 3 tablespoons sugar; mix well and press mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until set. Set aside to cool. In a large mixing bowl cream together cream cheese and 1 cup sugar. Fold in whipped topping. Spread mixture onto cooled crust. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in still frozen strawberries and allow to set briefly. When mixture is about the consistency of egg whites, pour and spread over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate until set.
