I’m still on that salty, sweet, tart, totally yummy margarita inspired recipe kick. And let me tell you, this Key Lime Margarita Pie might just be my favorite combo of those flavors to date. This pie not only tastes amazing, but it’s oh so easy to make. I’m an Arizona girl, so I am all about no bake desserts once the triple digits hit (which would be today)!
It’s funny. If you asked me if I loved lime, I’d probably say no. But dang, I think I kind of do. This pie is just all kinds of good. Did I mention that it has a pretzel crust? Pretzel crusts are pretty much the greatest thing to ever wear the name “crust”.
This takes very little time to make and is no bake. Score! You start out by making your pretzel crust. I use my food processor to crush my pretzels. After crushing them, you add butter and sugar (seriously, you could just eat that combo right there).
The pretzel mixture gets pressed into a pie plate.
Seriously, you could put anything in that crust and it’s going to rock. But let’s go ahead and fill it with the yummy Key Lime Margarita Pie filling. The original recipe from Kraft calls for lime juice, but I decided to go with half lime juice and half margarita mix. Mmmm.
I actually did not purposely match my whisk to my pie.
You simply pour your filling into your pretzel pie crust and pop it into the freezer to chill for a few hours. Easy peasy. You can go sip margaritas by the pool now, everyone will think you spent hours on this. I won’t tell if you don’t.
This is a fabulous dessert choice for summer (which appears to have arrived in Arizona, triple digits today!). I’m pretty devoted to chocolate when it comes to dessert, but this is a really nice and refreshing change of pace, and you can’t beat how quickly and easily it comes together.
If you are looking for a summer dessert, or a fun Cinco De Mayo treat, this is going to be a great choice.
Seriously, make this pie. You won’t be sorry. And if you are looking for more yummy lime flavor, here are some great recipes to try…
