Bet you thought I forgot about recipe Thursday!

LOL...I know I skipped a few weeks of recipes....guess I should have a disclaimer on my blog stating that I just won't get to it every week! Here's something yummy & grandma used to make this all the time & I just love it. I recently saw it in a magazine & it reminded me I have to make it!! Like this weekend!!


2 cups finely crushed pretzels
1/2 cup sugar, divided
2/3 cup butter, melted
12 oz cream cheese, softened
2 TBSP milk
1 8 oz carton Cool Whip
2 cups boiling water
1 6 oz pkg strawberry Jello
1 1/2 cups cold water
1 qt strawberries, sliced

Heat oven to 350. Mix pretzel crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar & butter; press onto bottom of 13x9 pan. Bake 10 minutes; cool. Beat cream cheese, remaining sugar & milk until blended. Stir in Cool Whip; spread over crust. Refrigerate. Add boiling water to Jello in large bowl; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Refrigerate 1 1/2 hours or until thickened. Stir in strawberries; spoon over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.

Does that sound yummy, or does that sound yummy?? I remember making this for my older son's birthday party a few years ago, & I didn't even get any of it!! It's a perfect summer dessert.....enjoy!!!
