Frozen Strawberry Margarita Pie
Ahhhh....the Frozen Strawberry Margarita Pie. This is an easy crowd pleaser....I mean who doesn't love strawberry margaritas? I've been making this recipe from Gourmet magazine for the last couple of years, and it's always a hit! And lucky for me, it's a really easy dessert to throw together! You just need to put this together the day before you want to serve it, so that it can firm up in the freezer.
Imagine a strawberry margarita combined with some fresh whipped cream and then poured into a graham cracker crust and frozen......there ya have it!! The amount of tequila and Cointreau in the recipe lets the pie truly taste like a strawberry margarita, but without a strong tequila taste. I think next time I'll bump up the amount of tequila so that you can taste it a bit (especially since the hubby insists that we have Patron tequila in the house.....that's some good stuff!!). You can also decide how frozen you want to serve this......right out of the freezer, or let it sit in the fridge for a while before you serve it, so that it's more of a mousse-y dessert.....your call!!
This is a little slice of summer-y heaven to me.....just close your eyes and imagine you're on vacation!
Go to Epicurious.com for the recipe.....and Enjoy!
