  • Pretzel Crust:

  • 1-½

    cups thin pretzel sticks (measured before crushing)

  • ¾

    cup granulated white sugar

  • ½

    cup (8 Tablespoons or 1 stick) butter, melted

  • Pie Filling:

  • One

    14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)

  • ½

    cup fresh lime juice (3 to 4 Persian limes, plus 1 for garnish)

  • 2

    Tablespoons gold tequila

  • 2

    Tablespoons Triple Sec

  • Zest of 1 lime

  • 1

    drop green food coloring (optional)

  • 1-½

    cups lightly sweetened whipped heavy cream, divided use

  • 12

    mini pretzels or thin pretzel sticks, for garnish

  • 2

    very thin lime slices cut in fourths, plus lime zest, for garnish


Place the pretzel sticks in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to finely crush them. Combine the crushed pretzels, sugar, and butter in a medium bowl. Press mixture into buttered 9-inch pie dish. Chill for 1 hour. In a large clean bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, tequila, Triple Sec, lime zest, and food coloring, if using. Fold in 1 cup of the whipped cream. Pour into cold pretzel pie crust and freeze for 4 hours. Decorate with remaining 1/2 cup of whipped cream, pretzels, lime quarter slices, and lime zest. This is basically an ice cream pie, so keep it frozen until ready to serve and freeze any leftovers. Yield: 8 servings Margarita Pie Recipe Photo © 2013 Peggy Trowbridge Filippone, licensed to, Inc.
