You have to crush the pretzels fine. There is a definite taste of salt, sugar and butter in the crust. It was great with a pudding pie filling but I would not make it with a fruit filling.You want the crust flavor to be a part of the dessert. Add waxed paper or non stick foil to press into pie pan, works very well. Thanks for posting.

This tasted great, however, I couldn't get it to hold together good. Either I didn't crush the pretzels small enough or I should have used a little more butter. But either way it was easy to make and tasted great. I used it as a base for a cheesecake pudding with fresh strawberries on the top.
