This is one of my most favorite spring/summer desserts.
If you’ve followed this blog before, you know I’m a big fan of cheesecake, like when I wrote about:

I am a glutton for punishment, I know! I can’t help it. I love CHEESECAKE!!!!
Anyhoo! This Pretzel Chesescake recipe came from a collection of recipes I have from *Charm’s Countryview Inn in Charm, Ohio. It’s also known as pretzel salad, but I actually think this is a little different from pretzel salad, as most people think of it. This recipe does not have Jell-O in it. You could say it has a little less salad and a lot more cheesecake. Hence: Pretzel Cheesecake.
Adapted from Charm Countryview Favorite Recipes
3 cups crushed pretzels
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 – 8 oz cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup white sugar
16 oz whipped topping
1 to 2 cans strawberry pie filling (or any favorite pie filling of choice)
Combine crust ingredients and pat into a 9×13 pan. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Cool.
Beat together filling ingredients and spread over crust. Top with pie filling. Chill for 2-3 hrs before serving.

This is one of the easiest cheesecakes you will ever make. Also, one of the yummiest! Fo’ sho’!
Just the perfect amount of sweet and salty.
Pretzel Cheesecake is great for taking to parties or cookouts. It goes perfect with any meal! I can’t think of a meal this wouldn’t go with. In fact, I would eat Pretzel Cheesecake as my meal!
Enjoy! And, your welcome! Oh, and please don’t send me your Weight Watcher’s bill. I have my own to worry about. Thanks!

*P.S. If you ever have the chance to visit Amish country in Ohio you must look up Countryview Inn in Charm, Ohio. It is the neatest little bed and breakfast. The owners are Christians and he gives a devotional every morning before breakfast. It is such a blessing to stay there. And the food is phenomenal! We’ve only been there once, but my mom and dad have been to Countryview Inn quite a few times and they love it. I am looking forward to the next time we can visit. It is so relaxing and peaceful, and the setting is so beautiful. The Inn is nestled on a hill, overlooking the country side. Absolutely amazing! (I was not paid for these comments. I just really like Countryview Inn, and was hoping the folks from the Inn would read this post and give me a free night… Just kidding! Seriously, I really do like the Inn! :D)
