Use melted marshmallows to bind this crust of crushed shortbread and pretzels; top it off with sweetened cream cheese and cooked strawberries.



  1. Spray a 9-inch round cake or spring-form pan with cooking spray and line the bottom with a round of parchment.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the pretzels and crushed cookies until combined. Press evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Let cool, then remove from the pan and remove the parchment, and transfer to a serving plate.
  3. Simmer the strawberries with 1/4 cup sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat until slightly broken down and thickened, 12 to 18 minutes (depending on ripeness). Cool slightly, then stir in the 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
  4. Beat the cream cheese with the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon lemon juice until smooth. Spread evenly on the pretzel-cookie round. Top with the strawberries, garnish with the almonds and crushed pretzels and serve.
