I really like sweets, but this is even too sweet for me. That said it makes a pretty presentation and it all got eaten. It turned out well, but there are other sweets I like much better.

This was an easy and impressive recipe that I served at a family gathering. My guests liked it fine, but I think it was too cheesecakey and rich. The pretzel crust was a little tough. I'm not sure I would make again with so many good dessert recipes out there.

I made this for my husband's birthday instead of a cake. He LOVED it and so did I. He took a bunch of precut pieces to work the next day and they all raved. It has the perfect combination of sweet/creamy/salty/crunchy. It is phenomenal and I'm not even a sweets eater!!

This is undoubtedly the best pie I've eaten in a long time! I think I made the crust a little too thick but still tasted awesome! I wish I could take the credit for creating it. My guests wanted more. I will be making this pie again!!!

This recipe sounds great! I've noticed several people said it is too sweet, well you can make the pretzel crust without the brown sugar and their is no problem. I have another recipe for pretzel crust and it is just butter & pretzels. That should help with the sweetness.

I've made this several times now, usually when entertaining, and it's a huge hit. The sweet/salty combination is perfect, and it just looks impressive. It overfills my pie plate, so maybe it's time for a good deep dish pie plate! I like to make it a little lighter, so I use neufchatel cheese in place of the cream cheese, and I substitute non-fat greek yogurt for the sour cream. Makes me feel better about it anyway!

My husband probably has the sweetest sweet tooth going, but he even thought that this was too sweet. I thought it was too heavy. I did follow the directions with no substitutions. I'm just not sure its something I would make again.
