(pardon my shorthand; I hate reading wordy recipes and sometimes change the format)
Some changes for next time:
- not to process the strawberries to liquid. I would have liked to have tasted some small pieces of strawberries instead. Maybe I could leave a few out and cut those up; puree the rest.
- I didn't use parchment paper, just greased the bottom plate.
- Not sure if I liked the chpd pretzels in the crust. Might stick with all cracker crumbs.
- Also, I forgot to put the sugar in the crumbs not sure it made a difference. Cut down on the calories that's for sure. This message has been edited. Last edited by: nance425,

Think I will try this with your modifications, for my sister visit in a couple of weeks.
Thanks a lot!
You're welcome LOS. It makes a lot. Probably about 14 pieces..but the good thing is you can keep it in the freezer for a good month.
If you make it, post back and let me know how you liked it.
That sounds so good nance425, I'm going to bring this tomorrow night to a dinner at our friends house.
I enjoyed the shorthand! reminds me of little blirp that was on Facebook a while back that started off: You just need to see the first and last letter of a word....The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. ... huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! if you can raed tihs psas it on !
SR, I've seen the same thing about only needing a coupla letters to be able to read the words. Amazing, isn't it?
Hope you like the pie. We took it out about 30 minutes to defrost before cutting/eating. Helped a lot.
p.s. I also took shorthand in H.S. and can still remember it. Sometimes I have to remind myself, people can't read that when I use it!!! This message has been edited. Last edited by: nance425,
Thanks for sharing, I'm going to save and try soon. Reminds me of my favorite pretzel crusted dessert with strawberry Jell-O.
Lurah: We call it pretzel salad - don't know why. It's one of our favorites that has to be made at all family gatherings.
This frozen pie goes a long way...
Nance, we call that strawberry salad as well.
I'll have to try your pie this summer when the girls come to lunch!
Love the addition of the thyme!
