Margarita Pie

You can't have a Mexican Feast to celebrate Cinco de Mayo without a yummy dessert. I saw this recipe for Margarita Pie on my friend Elizabeth's blog and knew it would be a perfect, refreshing ending to our Cinco de Mayo dinner with friends. I love desserts that you can make ahead and this one you can freeze overnight. I definitely tasted the alcohol in this so it is most definitely not a kid friendly dessert, but you could omit the tequila and triple sec! A margarita in pie form - can't go wrong with that!

For the crust:
8 tablespoons of butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup crushed pretzels

For the filling:
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
3-4 tablespoons tequila
2 tablespoons triple sec
1 tub cool whip

For the crust:
Crush pretzels into bite sized pieces and measure out 1 1/4 cup. Melt butter. Mix sugar and butter then add pretzels and coat. Press into the bottom of an 8X8 square pan coated first with additional melted butter or cooking spray.

For the filling:
Stir together all ingredients in a bowl. Pour over the pretzel crust. Freeze for several hours or overnight before serving.
