Pretzel Salad

This may be one of my favorite recipes.  It is a perfect side dish for spring and summer and all the cookouts.  I took it to Kevin's parents for Mother's Day and it went so well with everything.  It has the sweet and salty so it can kind of go for a dessert too.  I had a picture but it turned out awful so you'll just have to imagine!

 - 2 cups crushed pretzels (salted) - crush in plastic bag
 - 2/3 cup melted butter
 - 1/4 cup sugar
 Mix pretzels, butter and sugar, press in 9x13 pan.  Bake at 375 for 8 minutes.  Don't grease the pan!
 - 2 cups cool whip (i use low fat)
 - 8 oz. pkg cream cheese (i use low fat)
 - 1/2 cup sugar
 Beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar; fold in the cool whip.  Spread onto pretzel crust.
 - 6 oz. pkg strawberry jello
 - 2 cups boiling water
 - 20 oz. pkg. frozen strawberries
 Mix jello, water, strawberries and pour on top.

Refrigerate overnight.
Serves 12.

Ahahahaha. This is such an eastern shore recipe. My mom still makes it for dinners and stuff and everyone loves it, but has never heard of it before.
