Strawberry Pretzel Pie

strawberry pretzel pie

Yes, it tastes as good as it looks.  I’m a big fan of the sweet-and-salty combo, and this Strawberry Pretzel Pie is a divine example.  The pretzel pie crust gives it that salty flavor that accentuates the sweetness of the strawberries.  The freezing process takes a while, but it’s great to make ahead for a party or event.  Your guests will love it!

Frugal Tip:  Homemade whipped cream is so easy, more frugal, and WAY better-tasting than anything purchased at the store.  For me, it’s one of those “I’ll never buy-it-again” items.

Ingredients

  2. Place strawberries in a food processor or blender until finely chopped. Beat condensed milk, softened cream cheese and Jell-o at medium speed with an electric mixer. Add strawberries; beat on low until blended. Transfer to a large bowl. Beat ¾ C. of the whipping cream on high until soft peaks form. Fold the strawberry mixture into the whipped cream. Spoon into prepared, cooled crust. Cover and freeze overnight or until firm.
