Strawberry Pretzel Torte

I love this dessert in the summer because there is no baking involved. AND is great b/c one of my favorite things about summer is fresh strawberries. So yummy, not too much work, and no heating up the house by turning on the oven. EVERY time I've made this, I've had to give out the recipe.

(Made in a 9 X 13 pan)

Crust: 1 1/2 c crushed pretzels (I put mine in my mini food processor)
3/4 c sugar
1/2 c + 2 tbls melted butter

*combine and press into pan

Layer 1: Sliced Strawberries

*cover crust with sliced strawberries

Layer 2: large instant vanilla pudding
2 cups milk
1 c cool whip
2 tsp almond extract

*combine and spread over strawberries
*put in refrigerator and let pudding set

Layer 3: top with additional cool whip


  1. I am going to make this soon, I just got a deal on strawberries and why not use them in a dessert? Miss you. Love drooling over the yummy recipes you post.

  2. Miss you too. Your blog either cracks me up, or helps plan dinner for the week! You and Mike playing "the name game" for baby girl Nelson? Derek's bro & wife went in today. Her water broke at 1:40 am and we still haven't heard anything at 6:27 pm. She was 3 weeks early. We'll see...

  3. No names yet. This poor baby has not been thought about a whole lot. With house hunting and baseball and softball in full gear, I am lucky I have time to go to the bathroom. Sometimes I don't make it in time, this is what it is like to get old. That will be my new blog entry for next week. As soon as we hear if our offer was accepted I can think of a baby name. I like Rebekka (Bekka for short) and Madison (Maddy for short). I should do something that ryhmes with Happy because we already have one that rhymes with crabby and we know how that is sometimes.
