    I LOVE this recipe. The mix of the salty pretzels and sweet cherries is delicious. Can’t wait to make it again!

  3. Linda Hughes says:

    Can this dish be frozen to use a couple days later?

  4. Amanda Rea says:

    Our recommendation is not to freeze this dessert; freezing it may cause the layers to separate.

  5. Debra Fair says:

  6. Bonita Allen says:

    i used reduced calorie cherry filling and no fat frozen topping, but it was still pretty rich. kids seems to like it, a little too processed for me.

  14. Kimberly W. says:

    I made this tonight. It was a big hit. I didn’t have time to chill it the required time it said so, I put it in the freezer for about a half hour, five or take and it was perfect!!! I greased the bottom of my pan before I did the pretzel crust and it didn’t stick!!! . Try that and see if that helps next time, ***to the lady who said it’s stuck to her dish.

  15. Terri M says:

    I just made this to serve to friends tomorrow. I also ran out of the cream cheese mixture. The first layer with half the mixture was very thin – not as thick as the picture shows. I will have to run to the store tomorrow to get more cream cheese for the top layer. If I make this again, I will definitely double the cream cheese mixture.

  16. Pat Burwick says:

    I made this recipe. I knew from the beginning when I stated making the crust that the pretzel mixture wasn’t going to be thick enough for the bottom crust and top garnish if I put it in a 13×9 pan. So I used a square pan. If I would have used a 13×9 pan there absolutely wouldn’t have been nearly enough of the cream cheese mixture. I was concerned the crust would be badly stuck to the pan but refrigerating solved that problem. I’ll make it again because we liked it, but I think the recipe needs to be altered..

  17. Desira says:

    My mom used to make this when I was younger and so happens I thought about it today and did not know the recipe looked up online and see it here I am so excited because it is the most delicious dessert I had when I was young definitely making it for Thanksgiving❤️

  18. Amber says:

    Normally I read the reviews before I try a newer recipe, I should have done that here. Tastes great! However, not enough pretzel crust for the bottom and top, not enough butter to make the pretzel crust stay together and NO WAY was that enough cream cheese mixture. spreading the cream cheese was not pretty. It was a bust as far as looks and lack of ingredients but it tastes good, I won’t make it again.

  19. Barbara palmer says:

    I am looking for a vanilla with pudding cake that has cherry pie filling half full in a Bundt pan then you pour remaining batter on top

  20. Kelly L says:

    This mixture of salty and sweet was great! It was a hit with my family. I will put a bit less sugar in next time, though.

  21. Becky says:

    This is the recipe I grew up with tho we used Graham cracker crust. I really like the pretzel crust tho it’s not enough for two layers. Cream cheese mixture was not enough for two layers either! It is a very good dessert and I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing!!!

  22. Sandy Wood says:

    Ive made this many times . Everyone loves it.. You can def double the cream cheese mixture . I use heavy whipping cream and it doesnt have the sugar of the topping and it’s wonderful !
    Oh yeah Benjamin: Don’t correct someones’speiling if you’re wrong YOURSELF! – Anybody shououldn’t be capitalized.

  23. Becky says:

    First time making it, hopefully the way it looks won’t detour people from wanting to try it.

  24. Maria Fliess says:

    This is a family favorite, except I use real whipped creme instead of the fake stuff. Especially if you have kids or teens, you cannot go wrong with this dessert.
