Margarita Pie

A neat twist on lemon icebox pie. Very yummy!

Margarita Pie

1 1/4 cup finely crushed pretzels (I use my food processor)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar

1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
3 tsp grated lime peel or lime zest
1/4 cup lime juice (fresh squeezed is best!)
1/4 cup orange juice
1 (8oz) container Cool Whip, thawed

For crust: Combine all ingredients in medium bowl; press onto bottom and sides of 9-inch pie plate.
Filling: Combine condensed milk, lime peel, and juices in medium bowl; fold in Cool Whip. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour before serving.

**I like my filling a little more tart, so I use more lime juice than orange juice. I don't know the exact measurements...I just start with 1/2 cup and fill it with mostly lime juice, then fill to the top with orange juice. Make sense?
