No-Bake Frozen Margarita Pie

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 12 honey graham crackers
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • Juice of 5 limes
  • 1 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp tequila blanco
  • zest of 1 lime
  •  

    Directions:

      1. Gently melt butter is sauce pan and let cool.

      2. Crumble graham crackers into food proessor. Add sugar, salt and slowly add butter. Mix well until you have a wet sand consistency. Then, transfer graham crackers to a pie pan. Pack firmly into the bottoms and sides of the pan and freeze for 20 minutes.

       

      3. Meanwhile, whisk ¾ cup heavy cream in a medium bowl until cream begins to thicken to the point you see ripples and stiff peaks begin to form, 3–5 minutes.

       

      4. Cut limes in half and juice over glass measuring cup. Pour lime juice into another medium bowl and whisk in 14 oz. condensed milk, 3 Tbsp. tequila, and remaining ¼ tsp. salt until smooth.

       

      5. Fold half of whipped cream into lime juice mixture, carefully folding under and over while turning the bowl. Add remaining whipped cream and continue to fold until no streaks remain. Remove pie pan from freezer and pour in filling. Using the back of a spoon, gently spread filling to edge of crust. Cover pie with lime zest and freeze for a least 8 hours. You can also add lime zest before serving instead of prior to freezing.
