Tuesday Treats: Key Lime Margarita Pie

A margarita–frozen or on the rocks–is one of my favorite summertime drinks and key lime is one of my favorite summertime desserts. Y’all know I’d have to fall in love with this Key Lime Margarita Pie. Putting it together is easy, it’s the freezing that takes all the time! 😉

Prep Time: 15min.
Total Time: 6hr. 15min.
Servings: 10 servings
Enjoy our Key Lime Margarita Pie, but don’t worry about alcohol! The pie’s taste is from a salty pretzel crust and citrusy filling.

What You Need
1-1/4 cups finely crushed pretzels
1/4 cup sugar
6 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lime juice
1 env. (0.13 oz.) KOOL-AID Lemon-Lime Flavor Unsweetened Drink Mix
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided

Make It
Combine pretzel crumbs, sugar and butter; press onto bottom and up side of 9-inch pie plate. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Whisk next 3 ingredients in large bowl until blended. Stir in 2-1/2 cups COOL WHIP; pour into crust.

Freeze 6 hours or until firm. Let stand at room temperature 15 min. before serving to soften slightly. Top with remaining COOL WHIP.

Believe it or not, this is a dessert that Sam fixes for Easy and the kids and it’s quite a hit at the summertime parties held at the Nightrider compound. Easy hoards it. Gravedigger and Wiz always descend on the dessert table and abscond with the pie, necessitating a great game of hide and seek. 😉
