Strawberry Pretzel Squares

This weekend I finally tried this jello dessert that I've heard so much about. I got the recipe from the newspaper, but several family members told me how good it was.

Strawberry Pretzel Squares
prep time: 25 min plus refrigerating Makes: 20 servings
~What you need!
2 cups finely crushed pretzels
1/2 cup sugar, divided
2/3 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 pkg (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup thawed Cool Whip topping
2 cups boiling water
1 pkg (6 oz) Jell-o Strawberry Flavored Gelatin
1 1/2 cups cold water
1 quart (4 cups) strawberries, sliced

~Make it!
HEAT oven to 350 degrees F. Mix pretzel crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar and butter. Press onto bottom of 13x9 inch pan. Bake 10 min. Cool.
BEAT cream cheese, remaining sugar and milk until blended. Stir in Cool Whip; spread over crust. Refrigerate.
ADD boiling water to gelatin mix in large bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Refrigerate 1 1/2 hours or until thickened (spoon drawn through leaves definite impression). Stir in sliced strawberries; spoon over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.

This is definitely a recipe I'll use again (that's why I put it where I can find it lol).
