  • Crush pretzels, not into a fine powder, but just crush them. You still want to recognize that there are pretzels in the crust. . Mix together pretzels, 1/2 cup sugar and butter. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes in a 9" x 13" pan. Beat together the Cool Whip, cream cheese and 1 cup of sugar. Spread onto the TOTALLY cooled crust. Add boiling water into Jello. When the Jell-o is thoroughly mixed and free of any powder, add strawberries. Place Jello in refrigerator until it becomes partially gelled. Place on top of the cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate covered with Saran Wrap. You can place toothpicks around the dish so that the plastic wrap doesn't stick to the top of the pretty dish.

  • My four layer chocolate strawberry shortcake with homemade whipped topping. I baked two for my Mother's Day barbecue, and it went very fast. I believe my mom and sisters took several pieces home with them. Secret recipe though passed down from two generations, but it's very, very delicious, and addicting.
