Frozen Strawberry Margarita Pie

The Altitude Adjustment Section
Once again, you don’t need to heat up your kitchen to make this yummy little treat. All you have to do is prepare it at least 5 hours before you plan to serve it. Make it while you are having breakfast. Talk about multitasking! And I love this fun and easy crust!

Ingredients for crust
1 1/4 cups finely crushed pretzels
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted

Procedure for crust
In small bowl, combine all crust ingredients; mix well. Press mixture firmly into bottom of ungreased 8- or 9-inch springform pan or pie pan. Refrigerate while preparing filling.

Ingredients for filling
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons tequila
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
10 ounces strawberry puree
1 cup whipped cream

Procedure for filling
In large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, tequila and liqueur; beat until smooth. Add strawberry puree beat at low speed until well blended. Fold in whipped cream. Pour over crust. Freeze at least 5 hours or until firm. To serve, let stand at room temperature about 15 minutes. Store in the freezer.
