"It took some experimenting, but I've finally come up with the perfect lime pie ... refreshing and easy. The pretzel crust adds an extra special touch and every time I serve it, I get rave reviews! When ready to serve, garnish each slice with a dollop of whipped topping and a lime slice."

This is really yummy, smooth and nice. We didn't find it too sweet (I was afraid we might). I like the pretzel crust. I was impatient about waiting for the whipped topping to thaw, so I have some teeny bumps of it in my pie (which is okay). We had it as is last night for dessert (with some candied limes and mint). Tonight I'm going to freeze it for a while to see how it is frozen - fabulous, I'm sure. Thanks for this recipe, I'll make it again. LATER: Even better frozen - doesn't really "freeze," but sets up nicer. The crust gets a little too hard, though. Change up the crust a bit if you want to serve it frozen...excellent!
I tried the pretzel crust with a different, but similar filling (I prefer fresh lime juice). Gotta say the pretzel crust is not to my liking. It has chunks of pretzel even after using the food processor for a good minute to pulverize. You can also taste the pretzel malty flavor. I'm not sure why you think that should pair with the lime. So, I won't try this crust again.
I served this lime pie to a friend who initially said she did not like lime pie but was willing to try a piece. Now she says that this is her favorite pie recipe.
I made this pie for several parties this summer and it was always the first to be eaten. Everyone raved about it and wanted the recipe. It is so deceptively easy to make and the pretzel crust is really unique. I used just 2 drops of food coloring for a more natural look and served it garnished with fresh sugar coated lime slices-- delicious!
I made this pie for a key lime pie lover and this was one of the best they've had!..very good and I will definately make again.
Delicious and so easy.I used a graham cracker crust because I'm not a pretzel fan.I'll be making this again. The "2 extra servings" graham cracker crust is the perfect size.
Nice and creamy. The pretzel crust is great. Very rich though go tiny on the pieces.
Made this for a BBQ yesterday on a hot day, and it was delicious! Thanks so much - it was so easy!
