Strawberry Margarita Squares
Key lime juice is available in most major grocery stores. Nellie and Joes™ brand is easy to find, but if you happen to find Floribbean™ brand Key Lime Juice it is the best I have found.
1 1/4 cups crushed pretzels 1/4 cup butter, melted 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk 1 cup pureed strawberries 1/2 cup key lime juice 8 ounces whipped topping, thawed
Mix sweetened condensed milk, strawberries and key lime juice in large bowl until well blended. Gently fold in whipped topping. Pour over crust.
Freeze at least six hours or overnight. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before cutting into squares. Serve with garnish of sliced strawberries if desired.
Notes: If you do not want to make the pretzel crust you can use a graham cracker crust instead. It is just as good this way. Do not worry, it tends to shrink as it gets warmer.
Serves: 4 to 6
You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.
We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
