This is a wonderful non-alcoholic margarita-type pie.
2 cups crushed pretzels
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 (6 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate
1 quart vanilla ice cream (homemade or commercial)
1 cup whipping cream
Fresh lime and mint leaves for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine crushed pretzels, sugar and melted butter. Press into the bottom and up sides of a large pie plate. Bake crust for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely, then freeze until ready to use (freezing will make crust cold and allow ice cream pie to harden sooner).
Partially thaw limeade concentrate; slightly soften ice cream and fold into limeade (it need not be completely mixed at this point).
Whip cream until stiff; fold into ice cream mixture. Spoon filling into cold crust; freeze until firm.
To serve, garnish each slice with a thin lime twist and a mint leaf.
