I think a pretzel crust may be my new favorite thing. It’s fabulously salty, buttery, and crunchy and the flavor of pretzels goes so well with strawberries.

The pie filling has tons of strawberry flavor. It’s flavored with both fresh strawberries and strawberry gelatin. A combination of cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and whipped cream makes for a fabulouly creamy and rich filling.

Prepare Ahead of Time:

This pie needs to freeze for at least 8 hours before it is served. The pie crust needs to be baked but the filling is no-bake.

Tools You Need for This Recipe:

Food Processor– to finely chop the strawberries. If you don’t have one, you can finely chop them by hand.

Hand-Held Mixer– to mix the filling and make the whipped cream. A stand mixer can be used instead.

Deep Dish Pie Pan– There is too much filling to fit in a regular pie pan.

Strawberry Pretzel Icebox Pie Recipe Tip:

You can finely crush the pretzels either in a food processor or by placng them in a plastic bag and crushing them with a rolling pin or meat mallet.
