Morning Sun and Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

I made a quick ‘Morning Sun’ ATC today for the Fun with ATC’s challenge. 


I used my brayer and a circle mask, made a blue sky and green grassy area. I  stamped a SU stamp(that I just love). The dragonfly has a touch of Creative Inspirations Paint over the top for a little sparkle.  (The dragonfly brad is from Markie’s Finest Papers). I used a sponge to apply some Apricot ink to the Morning Sun. Nice and simple.


MMMMMM  My husband always asks me to make this for cook-outs……..  I thought I’d share the recipe

Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

2 2/3 c Crushed Pretzels

3/4 cup oleo

3 tbsp sugar

Press in 9x13 pan and bake 350 for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool


8 oz Cream Cheese

1 cup white sugar

1 small cool whip

Spread over the cooled pretzel mixture

2 pkg strawberry or raspberry Jello-mix with H20-stir until dissolved and add berries. Put in refrigerator until slightly thickened- pour over the top of the cream cheese layer.

Just the right blend of sweet and salty……my Mother in law gave me this recipe.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Love the look of the brayered sun on your ATC. Such a lovely scene. I've had that pretzel salad before and it is delish. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'll have to try to make it myself.
