This recipe is a winner! I've been searching for it for ages... it was a childhood favorite. And just a tip cause I bothered to measure... a 12oz. tub of cool whip is about 4 cups. YUM!!
I followed the recipe, but the pretzels were very soggy!! The flavor of the cherries and cream cheese were good.
This was a big hit! Loved the pretzel bottom and the hint of salty with all the sweet. Supper simple dessert to throw together. Will definitely be making again!
Tried it with blueberry filling, very good.
This is very good...I took it to work and the girls really enjoyed it!
Try adding a little cinnamon to the crushed pretzels, which I did. Also put whipped topping on top of the cherry pie filling, and sprinkled a little more crushed pretzels.
I used fat free cream cheese and 1 8oz tub of Cool Whip Lite and 1 tub of Cool Whip Free. For crust, I reduced butter to 1 stick (1/2 cup) - worked fine. I mixed the confectioner's and cream cheese together first then blended in the Cool Whip. UPDATE: I would use 1 tsp of Almond extract with the whipped cream mixture. Mine was a bit flat on flavor. Next time I will cut the whipped cream amount in half (didn't care for the airy texture as written). Overall, a good tasting dessert.
I made this recipe exactly as written. there was way too much pretzel mixture for the very little amount of cream cheese mixture. the pretzels were sogggy. the squares don't firm up -so they don't look anything like the photo.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
