Who Would Have Thought...
I first tasted this little treat a few years ago. My first thought was "oh wonderful, another typical jello casserole," but when I took my first bite I was in heaven. This was no ordinary jello dish, it was a strawberry & pineapple gooey goodness layered on top of a whipped cream cheese filling and crunchy pretzel crust. There is just something about the combination of sweet and salty with a touch of cream cheese that makes this simple dish divine.
I made this recipe for a some guests a few months ago. The same guests came to eat last week and personally requested that I make it again. I have seen a couple different variations of this recipe but This One by Paula Deen has been my favorite. I usually serve this as a side dish with dinner, but I think it could be used for a dessert as well. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
