Strawberry Pretzel Pie

I was reading a post about the most famous foods for each State in the U.S.
The most popular food in Utah is Pretzel Jello Salad.
I had already posted a recipe for one of them so I decided to create a collection of the most popular Jello Pretzel Desserts. There are Fruit Flavored Gelatin options available for Vegetarians and Vegans.
They are often referred to as Salad, Dessert or Pie.
Here are my favorite ones.


Strawberry Pretzel Pie:


2 C finely crushed Pretzels
3/4 C Butter, melted
1/4 C Brown Sugar
2 C sliced fresh Strawberries
1 - 14oz. can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 of an 8oz.  package of Cream Cheese. (use only 4 ounces), softened
4 TBS + 1tsp of Strawberry Jello
2 C Heavy Cream, divided
1/3 C Sugar

Mix together the Pretzels , Butter and Brown Sugar
Press into a 10" Pie Pan
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes
Remove and cool completely

Process the Strawberries in a food processor until finely chopped.

In a bowl using an electric hand mixer, beat:
Condensed Milk
Milk
Cream Cheese
Jello
Beat until smooth
You can also do this in a stand mixer with a whisk attachment

Add Berries and mix until well blended
Transfer to a large mixing bowl

Beat 3/4 C of the Heavy Cream to soft peak stage and fold into the Strawberry mixture.

Spoon into the crust and freeze for 8 - 12 hours

Beat remaining Heavy Cream ( 1/4 C ) in a stand mixer with a whisk attachment at high speed.
Gradually add 1/3 C Sugar ( do this process after the pie is completely frozen)

Top the frozen pie with the whipped cream and return to the freezer for another hour.
