Pretzel Jello

This is a delicious dessert. I was just asked to make three pans of it for our ward's enrichment. I got this recipe from a cook-off at work about 12 years ago. It was the recipe that won.

2 2/3 C. (10 oz. bag) stick pretzels, crushed
(I always look for the pretzels with the least amount of salt, but some is necessary)
1 1/2 C. butter
12 oz cream cheese, softened
1 ¼ C. sugar
12 oz cool whip, thawed
2 C. pineapple juice
6 oz. box strawberry jello
16 oz bag frozen strawberries

Prepare 9X13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Mix pretzels and butter. Spread in pan. Bake 10 minutes at 400°. Mix sugar and cream cheese, spread over warm pretzel crust. Chill in freezer till pan edges are cool. Spread cool whip over cream cheese, high along edges. Cook pineapple juice over med-high heat, bring to a boil. Remove from heat, stir in jello till dissolved. Add frozen berries. When berries have thawed, mash them. Let berry mixture chill in fridge till thickened. Pour berry mixture over cool whip. Set in fridge.
