How to make it

  • To make crust:
  • Preheat oven to 350, lightly oil a 9-inch pie pan or coat it with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a food processor, combine pretzels and sugar. Process until finely ground. Add egg white, oil and water and pulse until moistened. Press firmly into bottom and sides of prepared pan.
  • Bake crust for 10 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • To make filling:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk condensed milk, lime juice, tequila, orange zest and food coloring ( if using) until smooth. Set aside.
  • In another mixing bowl, combine warm water, powdered egg whites and cream of tartar. Stir gently until egg whites are dissolved, about 2 minutes. With an electric mixter on medium-high speed, beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff and glossy.
  • In a small chilled bowl with chilled beaters, beat cream with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. ( Alternatively, use a wire whisk.)
  • With a rubber spatula, gently fold reserved condensed milk mixture into beaten whites; fold in whipped cream. Pour filling into cooled crust. Freeze, uncovered, until firm, about 1 hour. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours more. ( pie will keep well wrapped in the freezer for up to 1 week).
  • Soften pie in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes before slicing. Garnish with lime slices and Sour Cream Topping, if desired.
  • To make topping:
  • In a small bowl, whisk sour cream and sugar until sugar dissolves. If not using immediately, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Enjoy!!!
