Ingredients

Crust

  • 5 1/2 tablespoons 80 grams butter
  • 1/4 cup 48 grams sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups finely crushed pretzels 4 oz/114 grams**

Filling

  • 1 lb strawberries halved (3 1/2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh lime zest
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 can 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tablespoons tequila
  • 2 tablespoons triple sec
  • 1 1/2 cups chilled heavy cream

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Stir in the sugar and crushed pretzels. Press pretzel mixture across bottom and up sides of a greased glass pie plate. Keep chilled until ready to use.
  • Make filling: Purée strawberries, zest, lime juice, condensed milk, tequila, and liqueur in a blender or food processor until smooth, then transfer to a large bowl.
  • Beat cream to stiff peaks. Fold one third of cream into strawberry mixture gently but thoroughly to lighten, then fold in remainder in 2 batches.
  • Pour filling into crust, mounding it slightly, and freeze, uncovered, until firm, about 4 hours. Remove from freezer and let soften in refrigerator, about 40 minutes, before serving (pie should be semisoft).
