    bratty's Note:

    Credit goes to Mr. Food on this one, it's from his Southwest cooking cook book. I've made this three times now, and taken it on the boat with friends, it's been a huge hit each time. Kids and adults both enjoy this.

      Excellent! These were really great - I loved the smell of the fresh lime juice and zest and the bars taste so creamy it was almost like a cheesecake. Thanks Brat - I'll be making these again. Now I'm wondering what they'd be like with lemon or orange.

      I have been making these bars for years, but lost the recipe. I was so glad to find it on here, but disappointed to see the not-so-great reviews. Then I remembered the first few times I made these and the few things I learned about these bars. First, "crushed pretzel" does not do it justice. You need pretzel powder, pretzel dust even. If you have ANY pieces in the crust, it will fall apart. Also, add a tsp or so of flour to the crust batter. To make the powder, pulse pretzels in blender of food processor, then strain through a wire mesh. Keep doing this in small batches until you get 2 cups, then proceed with the crust recipe. Second, to enhance the lime flavor, you can add 1/2 tsp tequila. Do NOT do this if children will be eating these. I am a licensed bartender and I can tell you the whole "alcohol cooks off" thing is a myth. If children will be eating these, add 1/2 tsp sweet and sour bar mix. Trust me, try these changes and you will not be disappointed!

      I'd been wanting to try these for awhile and thought I could improve the lime flavor that some others felt was lacking. I used 1/2 C of lime juice, 2 good Tbs of lime zest and yet still felt there was a little zing missing. The bars were sweet and the saltiness of the pretzel crust was a good compliment to that. Having tried these I think I would prefer a lime bar that didn't have the sweetened condensided milk. But other folks who tried them seemed to like them ok.
