3 T. sugar
3/4 c. melted butter
Cream Cheese Layer
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. sugar
8 oz. whipped topping
2 small packages raspberry or strawberry gelatin
1 – 2 c. frozen or fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, or the frozen berry mix are all good)
2 c. boiling water
Mix crushed pretzels, sugar and melted butter. Press into a 9x13 glass-baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Cool. Mix cream cheese and sugar. Add whipped topping.
