Strawberry Margarita Pie
1-1/4 cups crushed pretzels
1/4 cup sugar
10 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
1 can (14-oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup strawberries, crushed or pureed
1/2 cup lime juice
1 tub (8-oz) Cool Whip Strawberry Whipped Topping, thawed
(I used regular cool whip and it was just fine).
Mix pretzels, sugar and butter in 9-inch pie plate. Press mixture onto bottom and up side of pie plate. Refrigerate until ready to fill.
Mix condensed milk, strawberries and lime juice in large bowl until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Pour into crust.
Freeze 6 hours or overnight. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes or until pie can be cut easily. Garnish with additional whipped topping and strawberries.
This pie is DELICIOUS!!! The strawberry with a little lime, the sweet and salty in the crust, is perfect!! Makes a great summer dessert. Pretzels are not so easy to crush as crackers, so my crust was still a little crunchy - which I really liked.
