Yesterday, a crew of farmers came and the fields were prepared for planting, They needed to be limed, and fertilized. The cattle ranches here all get together, and go from farm to farm, through the summer, and cut hay, and bale, and haul. Well any way had to put on a huge feed. I made a Strawberry pretzel salad, feeds 20 servings. So when you got a huge bunch to feed, try this

Strawberry pretzel Salad

3/4 cup butter, melted

3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 cups crushed pretzels [ about 8 ounces]

1 package [6 ounces] strawberry-flavored gelatin

2 cups boiling water

2 cups frozen sweetened strawberries, I never tried fresh.

1 package [8 ounces ] cream cheese, softened

1 cup sugar

1 carton [ 8 ounces] frozen whipped topping, thawed

Combine butter, brown sugar and pretzels, pat into a 13 in, by 9 in. by 2 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 for 10 min. Cool, In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add strawberries mix well. Chill until mixture is the consistency of egg whites. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar.Fold in whipped topping. Spread over the crust. Pour the strawberry mixture on top. Chill 2- 3 hours, Yield 20-24- servings.

That sounds yummy. Another similar one (for a lazy cook) is a pie my cousin makes. She makes a pretzel pie crust, then fills it with slightly softened strawberry ice cream and refreezes it. That makes a great ice cream pie with very little effort.
