Strawberry Margarita Pie Recipe

This recipe was inspired by the Inn's Frozen Strawberry Margaritas. John's mom, Sue Cibula, thought that a Strawberry Margarita pie would be a delicious idea. She was already serving her Lime Margarita Pie which was a big hit and thought that the Inn's patrons would enjoy a Strawberry version since the Strawberry Margaritas were so popular. So, Sue and Aunt Noreen put their heads together, researched some recipes and then finally created this incredibly delicious dessert. Don't skip the pretzel crust. It really pulls the whole thing together. Here is the recipe. Enjoy!

The Franklin Inn's Strawberry Margarita Pie
Makes 15 square pieces

1 large Bag of Pretzels
1/2 cup Softened Butter
2 cups Non Dairy Topping
2 ounces Sauza Blanco Tequila
6 ounces Lime Juice
1/2 cup Sugar
2 cans Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 pint Strawberries....Coarse Chopped
2 ounces frozen Strawberry Cocktail

* Crush pretzels in a food processor (enough to cover bottom of pan)
* Mix pretzels together with butter, place in 1/2 (appr. 10 x12)  size foil pan and bake at 400 for 15 minutes.

* With a hand mixer, mix non dairy topping until stiff.

* Mix tequila, lime juice, and sugar, sweetened condensed milk, strawberries, and strawberry cocktail. (Frozen strawberries may be substituted but then the strawberry cocktail is unnecessary unless you want it to be extra berry tasting....its a preference thing!).

* Fold the stiffened non-dairy topping into the other mixed ingredients.
* Pour over the pretzel crust and freeze.

Garnish as you wish with fresh strawberry slice, lime, whipped cream, chocolate sauce etc.

You can also make this in a round pie pan....which we do occasionally.
