GF Strawberry Pretzel Dessert
Here's a wonderful recipe with a sweet/salty crust. The original recipe doesn't call for GF pretzels, but using them is a simple substitution.
1 1/3 c. crushed gluten free pretzels
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. melted butter
8 oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
12 oz. pkg Cool Whip, thawed
1 c. powdered sugar
6 oz. pkg Strawberry Jello
2 c. boiling water
16 oz. frozen strawberries
1. Combine pretzels, sugar and melted butter, pat into 9 x 13" pan. Bake about 15 min. Allow to cool completely before filling.
2. Combine cream cheese, Cool Whip and powdered sugar. Spread over cooled crust. Chill until firm.
3. Bring water to simmer and stir in Jello. Gently stir in frozen strawberries. Pour topping over filling. Refrigerate until well set.
Cut 4 x 6. Garnish with whipped topping or fruit as desired. Makes 24 servings.
