Easy Strawberry Pretzel Pie


2 cups coarsely crushed pretzels
3/4 cup margarine, melted
1 tbsp sugar
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 (3 oz) pkg strawberry flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
2 (10 oz) pkg frozen sweetened strawberries (do not thaw)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. (200 degrees C.)

2. In a medium bowl mix together crushed pretzels, melted margarine and 1 tbsp sugar. Press mixture firmly into bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes until lightly browned. Cool completely.

3. In a medium mixing bowl, beat together softened cream cheese and 1 cup sugar until smooth and fluffy. Fold in whipped topping and spread mixture evenly onto cooled crust.

4. Place gelatin in a medium heat-proof bowl and pour in boiling water. Stir gently until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add frozen strawberries and continue to stir until mixture begins to thicken.
Chill until semi-firm but still pourable. Pour gelatin mixture over cream cheese layer.
Chill at least 2 hours before serving.

Suggestion: Top each slice with whipped cream when serving if desired.
