Pretzel Peach Pie

Sweet and salty deserts are all the rage, and while you may not think to combine such flavors the outcome is really quite amazing. A little saltiness from the crunchy pretzel crust of this pie really brings out the sweet flavor of the peaches with a cool layer of creamy cheese in the middle. The peach layer, made with peach nectar rather than preflavored peach gelatin, is velvety and delicious with a dash of cinnamon and honey to give it a little spice. I wrote this recipe especially for the Cooking Channel where you can find the recipe complete with process photos.

Jello Pretzel Salad

Starr told me about this strawberry Jello and cream cheese layered dish with a crushed pretzel crust that was a childhood favorite and a staple at family gatherings in her Pennsylvania hometown growing up. I’ve been wanting try it for a while so I made it for Starr for her birthday. I followed the recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything. (In retrospect I would have used less Cool Whip, as little as one cup, as my cheese layer came out too runny and sweet.)  Happy Birthday Starr!
