    Cranberry Pretzel Salad

    Layer 1
    2 cups finely crushed pretzels
    3/4 cup melted butter
    1 tablespoon granulated sugar

    Mix ingredients together. Press into the bottom of a large flat baking dish. Bake 8 minutes at 350 degrees F. Let cool. Meanwhile, prepare layers 2 and 3.

    Layer 2
    8 ounces cream cheese
    1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip
    1/2 cup granulated sugar

    Mix together, and spread on top of cooled crust.

    Layer 3
    1 large box black cherry Jell-O
    2 cans whole cranberry sauce
    2 cups boiling water
