This is a good dessert - the picture on this recipe is a little deceiving...it's not a trifle...it must be baked in a 9x13 pan. Otherwise, great stuff. Best on the 1st day. Crust can get a little soggy. To stop strawberry mixture from running into cream cheese - refrigerate *well* after adding cream cheese layer and before adding strawberry layer.

This is the best pretzel salad from this site. For some reason the ingredient measurements are perfect and they work. Delicious. Thanks for the post.

I had a similar recipe years ago and had lost it and missed it. When I found this I made it for my family at Thanksgiving. My boyfriend ate about 1/3 of it before we even got to my Mom's house. I had to make it a second time that weekend. I also do frozen raspberries with raspberry jello, and I found I prefer pretzel crumbs to crushed pretzels with bigger pieces. I now crumb them in the blender. I also think the 1/3 less fat than cream cheese neufchatel cheese is better tasting in this than cream cheeses (and I by far generally prefer cream cheese)
