Chopped pretzels and brown sugar make a perfect salty-sweet crust for these creamy layered cherry bars.”
You can also make this dessert in individual clear custard cups or small 8-ounce canning jars. Place layer of pretzel mixture on the bottom. Next, add cream cheese mixture and top with pie filling. You can also use raspberry or blueberry pie filling!
This recipe is a winner! I’ve been searching for it for ages… it was a childhood favorite.
I made this recipe exactly as was written except I doubled the cream cheese mixture. It turned out perfect and so good! It firmed up, the pretzels weren’t soggy and it held together beautifully for serving. The only thing bad was that it was such a huge hit, it didn’t last very long! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
Try adding a little cinnamon to the crushed pretzels, which I did. Also put whipped topping on top of the cherry pie filling, and sprinkled a little more crushed pretzels.
I used fat free cream cheese and 1 8oz tub of Cool Whip Lite and 1 tub of Cool Whip Free. For crust, I reduced butter to 1 stick (1/2 cup) – worked fine. I mixed the confectioner’s and cream cheese together first then blended in the Cool Whip. UPDATE: I would use 1 tsp of Almond extract with the whipped cream mixture. Mine was a bit flat on flavor. Next time I will cut the whipped cream amount in half (didn’t care for the airy texture as written). Overall, a good tasting dessert.
This was a big hit! Loved the pretzel bottom and the hint of salty with all the sweet. Supper simple dessert to throw together. Will definitely be making again!
