Margarita Pie

1 1/4 cups finely crushed pretzels
2/3 cup butter melted
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 (14-ounce can) sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice
2 to 4 tablespoons tequila
2 tablespoons Triple Sec
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
Lime slices for decoration

Lightly butter a 9-inch pie plate.

Combine crushed pretzels, melted butter, and sugar in a small bowl; then press firmly into bottom and up the sides of the pie plate, creating an even thickness. Refrigerate pie crust while making filling.

In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, tequila, and Triple Sec; mix well. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into prepared crust.

Cover pie and either freeze for 4 hours or refrigerate 2 for hours.

If frozen, soften in refrigerator slightly before serving. Decorate with lime slices. Freeze or refrigerate any leftover pie.

Makes 1 (9-inch) pie.
