Expert Tips

This dessert has delightful taste and texture. The crushed pretzels in the crust provide crunch and a salty flavor that nicely contrasts with the sweet, creamy filling and fruit topping.

Instead of strawberry, try another red-fruit pie filling such as raspberry or cherry.

Trim each serving with a small tree-shaped pretzel dipped in melted chocolate chips or candy coating. Look for candy coating at cake decorating supply stores.
