2 T. sugar
1 16 oz. frozen strawberries
1 large package of strawberry jello
2 cups of boiling water
1 (8oz.) package cream cheese (softened)
1 container of cool whip
3/4 c. confectioner's sugar

Take the first 3 ingredients and combine them.(Elizabeth Jane loves to use our meat tenderizerand put the pretzels in a Ziplock bag to crush them. I prefer to put the pretzels in a bowl and crush them with this hand chopper.)  Press into a 9 x 13 inch pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Let cool completely.

Beat the cream cheese, cool whip, and confectioner's sugar in a bowl until smooth.  Spread this mixture over the pretzel crust. Elizabeth Jane likes to 

In a small bowl dissolve jello package mixed with 2 cups of boiling water.  Add the strawberries into the jello and stir until evenly distributed.  Put bowl in refrigerator until partially jelled.  Once it is partially jelled pour over the top of the cream cheese mixture.  Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.  Cut into squares to serve.
