About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

~ From the Recipe Box ~



Internet photo isn't this a lovely recipe box?


I'm not sure where I got this recipe, I have it for about 20 years. It is a good Spring/Summer brunch lunch sort of recipe.

Here is the list of ingredients.  Since this is made in 3 stages I've listed the ingredients by stage.
 
 
Strawberry Pretzel
 
Crust Layer 1
 
2 cups crushed pretzels
1 1/2 sticks melted butter
3 Tbls sugar.
 
No fancy here, you can put your pretzels in a ziplock bag and roll and crush them with a rolling pin.
It doesn't have to be finely crushed,  this will be the crust and give texture to the dish. You will bake this at 400
degrees 8 - 10 minutes.. it will vary in ovens so keep an eye on it.  It should cool before you put the next layer on.
 
Layer 2
 
1  8 oz pkg of cream cheese
9 oz of coolwhip
1 cup of sugar
 
You will cream the cream cheese, add sugar a little at a time to make sure it's all muxed up together well,
and then add your cool whip. This mixture will be spread upon the cooled pretzel crust.
 
Layer 3
 
2 cups boiling water
1 6 oz strawberry jello
20 oz of frozen strawberries ( defrosted )
 
Boil water, add jello and strawberries , I put these all in a bowl, and then ladel the mixture after it cools slightly on top
of the cream cheese mixture.
