Cherry Pretzel Squares

Cherry Pretzel Squares

Creamy cheesecake bars use chopped up pretzels in the crust and are topped with a cherry pie filling to create a satisfying salty-sweet flavor.



1 1/2 qt. chopped pretzels
1 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 qt. whipped cream or prepared whipped topping
1 lb. cream cheese, softened
2 cups confectioner's sugar
5 cups (about 45 oz.) LUCKY LEAF Cherry Pie Filling**


  1. In a bowl, combine pretzels, butter and sugar. Spread half pretzel mixture in bottom of a full-size steamtable pan. Bake in 350°F oven for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
  2. In a bowl, whip cream cheese until softened. Stir in confectioner’s sugar. Fold in whipped topping just until combined.
  3. Spread half of cream cheese mixture in an even layer over baked crust. Spread cherry pie filling evenly over the cream cheese layer and top with an another even layer of remaining half of the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining half of pretzel mixture.
  4. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours before cutting into 24 equal portions to serve.**Note: LUCKY LEAF/MUSSELMAN'S Lemon, Peach or Blueberry or LUCKY LEAF Pineapple Pie Fillings can be substituted for Cherry Pie Filling.
