As much as I hate to downplay a Pillsbury recipe, 99% of which are the best, this pie just wasn't worth the trouble. The mixture of consistencies was actually a little bizarre and after a half a day the pretzels got stale, the jello got gummy and the strawberries kept releasing moisture and making the whole thing very unpleasant.

Love this sweet and salty combination. I have made this 3 times and it is always a hit. Does take a while to make but it is worth it. Next time I am going to try Blueberries with it. Hum! That may be good. But love Strawberries!!

This was a big family hit! They love pretzel jello. To save calories I did not put the extra pie crust on though. Great idea making this treat manable for smaller gatherings and pretty in the pie plate.

I made this for Memorial Day and everyone loved it. They said I should enter it in a contest. I said it already won the State Fair. I will use fresh sliced strawberries the next time. I did not care for the frozen one's. Everyone should make this one.

This recipe is great. The crushed pretzels compliment the filling and strawberries. I would make it again.

This pie looks beautiful. I'd like to make it with this type of border.
Could you please let me know how to do the edge like yours?

I love this recipe. My husband is diabetic and I made it sugar free and he did not even no it and loved it. Thanks for the tips.

I've been making this strawberry pretzel salad since the mid 1980's. (withouth the pie crust) I've used splenda in the pretzel crust, splenda with the cream cheese mixture and sugar free jello (I try to find the frozen strawberries with no sugar too). The cream cheese/whipped topping doesn't get as fluffy, but still tastes good. (you could use part sugar). My sister-in-law used blueberries and and blackberry jello and that was good too. You can use fresh fruit (strawberries, etc.) too. I might take longer to 'set' the jello though. I'm giving 4 stars because of the high calorie count.

I make this recipe with just the pretzel crust in a 13 X 9 baking dish. After the pretzel crust is cooled, I spread the cream cheese layer, then the strawberries, then the jello mixture and trim the entire dessert with whipped cream.
