This recipe was delicious! I did purée the strawberries in my ninja and it turned out just fine. I should have crushed pretzels 🥨 a little smaller, it tasted great, but I think I will try it again with graham crackers. I did remove the pie from the freezer about 25 min before cutting. It was super easy and is definitely something I will try again!
Wonderful flavor! The filling tasted like a smoothie. The crust was a little thick, but tasted great. I used a 9 inch pie plate and had extra filling left over so maybe next time I will use a jelly roll dish so the crust is thinner and I can use all the filling. I also pureed the strawberries and think that added to the smooth creamy texture.
I cheated in an effort to save time and calories. Instead of the whipping cream and sugar, I folded in an 8 ounce container of Cool Whip. My family loved the pie! It did not need additional whipped topping on top. I also used gluten free pretzels to make the pie gluten free. It turned out great! We put the pie on the counter during dinner so that it could thaw a little. It was a perfect summer dessert! Will make again.
The filling (taste, consistency, ease of preparation) is amazing! Unfortunately, despite using cooking spray, the pretzel crust is cemented on to the bottom of my pie pan. The next time I make this I will opt for a graham cracker crust.
This pie was a huge hit at Easter dinner. Everyone from Grandpa and Grandma to my 18 month old niece loved it. I did accidentally purree the strawberries as opposed to finely chopping them. It didn't seem to make a difference. The only thing I will do differently next time is the crust, it was a litte thick, so I will use a little less and make sure I am patting it out evenly. Defiantly keep it in the freezer and set out about 30 minutes before planning to eat. It was absolutely perfect. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
Is the crust really suspose to have 3/4 cup butter to 2 cups crushed pretzels? or should it be 1/4 cup butter?
Superb!! My husband requests this one. Made in 9.5 deep dish pie plate which worked very well. Allow to sit out ~20 mins before serving so is easier to cut/serve. Here's a twist: Substitute fresh peaches & use peach jello........YUM!!
Very labor intensive! Nice flavor but too hard frozen. Since it is an "icebox" pie I left it in the refrigerator overnight after cutting the night before frozen. Frozen it was extremely hard to cut through the pretzel crust. In the morning the filling had oozed out from under the whipped cream. Too runny to eat just refrigerated. Will definitely not make again.
I made this pie about a week ago...very good with GREAT flavor! The only thing I would change is the crust...it was too thick, I will use a little less next time or make it in a 13X9 pan si the crust will be thinner.
I did not like the pretzel crust, but the filling was amazing. I will definitely make this again using a graham cracker or shortbread crust.
Made this for dessert on Easter Sunday. Just delicious! Be sure to allow the frozen pie time to soften in the fridge before serving, but put leftovers back in the freezer.
Does this stay in the freezer or is the fridge good after it's chilled? It seems hard after being in the freezer. Tastes good just hard.
the filling for this pie is so pretty and tasty. i especially like the little chunks of strawberry within the mousse-like pie. a good way to use one's crop of strawberries.
this was outstanding!! it tastes like those Good Humour strawberry shortcake ice cream bars. DELISH!!!!!!
A hit with the family!
