Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Melt 1 1/2 sticks of butter. I place the dish right on the stove and melt it.

Place enough pretzels to cover the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with 3 T sugar. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool.

Soften 8 ounces cream cheese.

Mix in 1/2 C sugar.

Add 1 tub Cool Whip. I prefer real whipped cream. I was out of whipped cream and a quick run to the gas station resulted in using the Cool Whip.

Spread mixture over cooled pretzels.

1 package of frozen strawberries.

Take 6 ounces of strawberry jello and add 2 C boiling water. Mix until all jello is dissolved. Add 1 C cold water and stir.

When the strawberries are still partially frozen chop them into bite sized pieces.

Add berries to the jello.

Pour gently over top of the cream cheese mix. Refrigerate.

Jeannie's Peanut Butter Apple Salad


This is such a simple yet delicious salad. We had this at a
friend's cottage and Farmer loved it. She is like me and doesn't
measure. I watched her make a second batch while there and
the measurements are a good guess at best.


Wash and dry 5 or 6 apples. I prefer tart apples.


Core and cut into bite sized pieces. Leave the skin on for extra
flavor and color.


You'll need about 1 1/2 C peanut butter, 3/4 C mayonnaise and
1/4 C honey. I just scooped, and squeezed until it looked right.
And, you can adjust depending on how peanut butter crazy
you are.


About 1 C raisins.


Mix together well.
