Pretzel Jello

This is my MIL's recipe!  It is a great side to any dinner and the adults will be fighting the kids for it!!

2 cups crushed pretzels
2/3 cup nuts
3 Tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup butter

Crush the pretzels to whatever texture you want.  Mix together with nuts (I like walnuts) sugar and butter.

Press onto the bottom of a 9x13 pan and bake for 10 minutes at 350.

Cream Cheese Layer 
8z cream cheese
1 cup sugar
Small Cool whip or make some fresh from whipping cream

Mix the cream cheese and sugar and fold in the cool whip.  Layer on top of crust.

Jello Layer
1 Large or 2 Small jello packs in your choice of flavor
2 cups boiling water

Combine boiling water and jello and mix.  At this time you can add any fruit as well. I like to add Strawberries, Bananas or Raspberries!

Let it cool in the fridge, but don't let it set too much or it won't poor onto the cream cheese layer good.  But, if you poor it too soon then it will sort of melt the cream cheese layer!

Pour onto cream cheese layer and put back in the fridge to allow the Jello layer to finish setting!


Pizza Dough #2

I got this recipe from my friend, Tawnya.  This is a more traditional pizza dough recipe. So, if you're looking for a more "Italian" pizza dough go with this one!  It was delish!

Makes 4 large pizzas

8 1/2 cups flour
3 1/2 cups water
1/8 c oil
2 Tablespoons yeast
2 Tablespoons salt
1/4 cup sugar

Mix all ingredients together and add whatever seasonings you would like.  The recommended seasonings are Oregano, Basil and Garlic.

Divide dough into 4 balls and put in the fridge.  Pull it out 1 hour before you want to shape it and bake it.

Roll out into a pizza, add sauce and toppings.

Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes
