This is a dessert that my Grandma Lunsford used to make all the time. I loved it…and she knew it. Every time I eat this, it brings back great memories. It’s delicious!

1 1/2 cups (5 ounces) pretzels, finely crushed
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1 package (3 ounces) lemon flavored gelatin
1/2 cup water
1 lemon
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
3 cups assorted fresh fruit such as:
blueberries, raspberries, or sliced strawberries, kiwis, peaches, or nectarines

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. For crust, finely crush pretzels in resealable plastic bag. Place in small bowl. Add butter and sugar; mix well. Press crust mixture onto bottom of 9×13 inch glass baking dish. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven to Cooling Rack. Cool completely.

2. For filling, sprinkle gelatin over water in small bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until gelatin is dissolved. Zest lemon to measure 1 teaspoon zest; set zest aside. Using Juicer, juice lemon to measure 2 tablespoons juice. Add lemon juice to dissolved gelatin.

3. In another bowl, combine lemon zest and cream cheese. Using whisk, gradually whisk in gelatin mixture and whipped topping until smooth; spread evenly over crust. Refrigerate 30 minutes to one hour. Top with fresh fruit; slice and serve.
