  1. Really rich and good! Yet not heavy if you can believe something can be rich and not heavy. I wasn't clear with some of the directions but it turned out deliciously decadent anyway! I used 1 1/4 cups crushed pretzels, (not pretzels, crushed) as that filled my pie plate better. I also used 1 cup whipping cream, whipped (instead of 1 cup whipped cream), mostly because I kept tasting for texture and that is the ratio I preferred. This must be kept frozen as it melts a bit if it sits out too long. Excellent recipe for summer (no cooking required), bbq's, mexican themed menu... I will make this again and again! Oh, and it's easy, too boot!
  2. Thank you for this great & fun recipe. I just won a pie contest in my office making this pie. Everyone loved it!
  3. I cannot describe how good this pie is. It is also so easy to put together.
  4. Easy and delish! I was a little concerned when I tasted it before I froze it that it didn't have enough flavor, but I served to to company and it got rave reviews. I will be making this one again very soon. Many thanks.
  5. I was looking for a margarita pie crust that didn't need baking, and this one fit the request. I got the idea of to put the pie into a lime. Worked out beautifully-- I think. I put two tablespoons of tequila! super easy and super delicious! i skipped the food coloring because I wanted it to look more like key lime. I cut the bottoms from the limes so they would sit nicely. It was a little tricky to cut out the inside of the limes but I did it. It was messy but worth it. Put it all in the freezer until we're ready to eat them! Thanks for sharing this recipe! I got the idea to use limes from **** update -- not worth the trouble to put the pie in the limes. while presentation was awesome the taste was horrible. The very tartness of the limes was very overpowering. Definitely not worth the trouble for the bad taste. The pie and crust stand alone and is very yummy, put the pie in a pie shell or tarts--skip the limes.
