Frozen Margarita Pie
- Active Time 15m
- Total Time 4h 30m
Makes 8 servings
The salty crust will remind you of the traditional salted rim of a margarita glass. A creamy lime-and-tequila filling completes this refreshing, tangy-sweet frozen pie.
- For the Crust:
- 1 cup finely crushed pretzels
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup margarine or butter, melted
- For the Filling:
- One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/3 cup frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
- 1-2 tablespoons tequila
- 1 tablespoon orange liqueur
- Several drops green food coloring (optional)
- 1 cup whipping cream
- Lime slices (optional)
FOR THE CRUST:
Stir together crushed pretzels and sugar. Stir in melted margarine or butter. Spread mixture evenly into a 9-inch pie plate. Press onto bottom and sides to form a firm, even crust. Preheated oven to 375 degrees F and bake for 5 minutes or until edge is lightly browned. Cool on a rack.
FOR THE FILLING:
In a large mixing bowl combine sweetened condensed milk, limeade concentrate, tequila, orange liqueur and, if desired, food coloring. In a medium mixing bowl beat whipping cream till soft peaks form; fold into tequila mixture. Spoon filling into crust. Cover and freeze about 4 hours, or till firm. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. If desired, garnish with lime slices.
