Frozen Margarita Pie

  • 1⅓ cups pretzels, crushed
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 (21-ounce) can strawberry pie filling
  • ½ to ⅔ cup frozen margarita mix, thawed
  • 1 (8-ounce) carton Cool Whip, thawed

Grease 9-inch pie plate. In medium bowl, combine 1¼ cups of the pretzels, sugar, and butter. Press evenly onto bottom and sides of prepared pie plate to form crust. In a large bowl, combine strawberry pie filling and margarita mix. Fold in Cool Whip. Spoon mixture into crust. Sprinkle with remaining pretzels. Freeze for about 2 hours until firm. Before serving, remove pie from freezer, and let stand 30 minutes at room temperature.
