- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- For crust, in a medium bowl combine crushed pretzels, 3 tablespoons sugar and melted butter. Spread in a 9-inch springform pan, pressing evenly onto bottom and sides.

- Meanwhile, for filling, in a medium saucepan combine remaining 1 cup sugar and corn starch. Gradually stir in water. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly; reduce heat. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in gelatin until dissolved. Cool for 20 minutes.
- While glaze is cooling, wash strawberries; remove stems. Add to gelatin mixture; spoon into crust-lined pan. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours.
- Just before serving, in a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese and powdered sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until thoroughly combined. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon over filling. If desired, sprinkle crushed pretzels on top.
