this recipe is awesome! i substituted 3/4 c. all natural applesauce instead of the butter for an even healthier version! otherwise, the saltiness is to die for-

I followed the recipe exactly but found the crust to be a little dry and salty. It definitely has potential though. Next time I might try reduced sodium pretzels and a bit more butter. It was a great compliment to chocolate cream pie--nice contrast of sweet and salty!

I have used a version of this crust for years. Regular granulated sugar works fine instead of brown sugar. Try a filling of 2 qts softened vanilla ice cream (lowfat is fine)mixed with a 12-oz can lemonade or limeade, slightly thawed. I used the Kitchen-Aid paddle attachment to mix them so they're real smooth. Pour filling into cooled 13x9 pretzel crust, then freeze until firm. Sprinkle a slight handful of toasted pretzel crust mixture over the top just before serving for a nice garnish and extra crunch. Most refreshing pie in the WORLD. We can't get enough of it in the summertime!

This is a great crust!! Like the reviewer before me, it works great with Strawberry pie (sweet but a touch of salt). However, if you bake in the 9x13 baking dish, it gets difficult to transfer to a pie pan...therefore, just fill the pie plans you wish to use with it and bake. Also, I don't bake for the full 10 minutes...only 6-8 minutes, which doesn't sound like much of a difference but 10 minutes (for me anyways) always results in a too tough pie crust. Baking a few minutes less makes the finished pie easier to cut and serve.

Really really good - but make sure to crush up the pretzels COMPLETELY because I had some chunks that made pressing it into the pie plate a little difficult. Thanks for the recipe!

I used half the amount of sugar for the crust and filled with my strawberry pie recipe. Very good.

Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I always have soooo many pretzels left over from those huge Costco bags, this is a great use for them! "Waste not, want not."
