Life's Short... Eat Dessert First

Last night was our Southwestern Dinner... and the dessert served was a luscious Margarita Pie! It received rave reviews and multiple requests for the recipe. So, as promised, here's the recipe!

Margarita Pie
1-1/4 c. finely crushed pretzels
2/3 c. butter, melted
1/4 c. sugar
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/3 c. fresh lime juice
3 Tbsp. Tequila
2 Tbsp. Triple Sec
1 c. heavy cream, whipped
Lime slices for garnish

Butter a 9-inch pie plate. Combine crushed pretzels, butter, and sugar until blended. Press firmly on bottom and sides of the prepared pie plate. Refrigerate until ready to fill.

In a large bowl, blend sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, tequila, and Triple Sec until well mixed. Gently fold in whipped cream. Spread evenly into prepared pretzel crust.

Cover lightly, and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. Garnish with lime slices.
Serves 8.

Mmm. The person who invents a way to have pie come right out of computers on demand will be successful indeed. Nice work.
