This is a good dessert recipe but was too sweet for my taste and didn't 'wow' me like it did other reviewers. I can't see me making this again. Read More

I've made this so many times I'm reviewing it again. It is so good I could eat the whole pan. I change it a little...I bake the crustat 350 for about 9min and use an 11x7 pan 3/4c crushed pretzels. For the cream filling I use fat free cool whip and fat free or light cream cheese and only 1/4c sugar. For the topping I use a large can of pineapple chunks and just put then in the food processor first. No sugar needed in the topping and because of using large can instead of 8oz I use 3T cornstarch.

Absolutely delicious!! Made this for a family get-together and it was a definite success. Really liked the pineapple better than other similar recipes that use the strawberries. I actually baked the pretzel/sugar/butter crust mixture in the pan on 350' for 10 mins. I wanted to be sure it was crunchy & not gritty. Yum! Yum! Read More

a little too sweet but a delicious dessert that can be used for company. Used 16-oz crushed pineapple instead of 8 oz. Read More

I thought a mistake had been made concerning the pretzel crust. I make the strawberry version and it says to bake the crust. Fearing the unbaked crust would be gritty I baked it 8 min @ 400 degrees then let cool before spreading on the cool whip/cream cheese mixture. The dessert came out crunchy/chewy sweet/salty... couldn't be better. Read More

I've made this several times for different family gatherings. I made this for Easter and each year I am assigned this dish. It never makes it to the leftovers table. During a family funeral I made 1 pan and before the entire event was over I had made 4 pans. It was the first dessert to disappear. Read More

I made this for a party yesterday and it was a hit...didn't even get to bring any home! I was making other goodies and was short a baking dish so I baked the pretzel crust on a large cookie sheet @ 350 for 10 min. I then put the layers in a trifle dish which made a nice presentation. I agree with other reviewer's....very addicting! I look forward to making this again soon. Thanks for sharing! Read More
