It started many years ago when my mother found this raspberry dessert recipe and brought it to one of our family gatherings. It was a hit! My cousins would request that she make it for subsequent get-togethers. Over time, no one needed to make that request; she would simply bring it.
The wonderful thing about this dessert is its layers. The pretzel crust has a salty and nutty flavor. The cream cheese layer is sweet and rich, but not heavy. The raspberry layer is tart and refreshing. Together, the dessert is a complex symphony of flavors and textures that perfectly balance each other.
Try it out, it may become one of your family’s favorites too!
