    Notes

    • This recipe can be doubled if necessary for cheesecake crust or other recipes that require a thicker crust or larger pie plate.

    • This recipe only has 2 major ingredients and one additional optional one:
      • Graham Cracker Crumbs
      • Melted Butter
      • Sugar which is optional

      These ingredients mixed together create something so special. They create a wonderfully stable crust.

      To start, you’ll need graham cracker crumbs, which can be quickly made by placing your graham crackers in a food processor and pulsing until they are fine crumbs.

      Tip: If you do not own a food processor, place the crackers in a large Ziploc bag, seal properly and go to town on them with a rolling pin or meat tenderizer. Great way to relieve a little tension!

    • Place your crumbs, sugar and butter in a large bowl and mix together until the mixture is a little bit crumbly but holds together when squeezed in your hands.
    • Scoop the mixture into the pie dish of your choosing and press it down firmly on the bottom and up the sides.

      Tip: You can use the back of a spoon or bottom of a measuring cup to help create a smoother, more even texture.

    • Pop the crust in the oven and bake for 10-minutes so that your crust will be nicely set. There you have it, a simple, homemade buttery crust that crumbles in all the right ways. All you have to decide on is what delicious filling to use tonight!

    To Make Filling:

    • Add strawberries, zest, lime juice, condensed milk, tequila, and orange juice to your blender or food processor and blend or pulse until completely smooth.
    • In the bowl of your mixer, add heavy cream and beat until stiff peaks appear.  You can tell by making sure the whipped cream stays on the beaters.  
    • Pour strawberry mixture from the blender to a large bowl then slowly fold in 1/2 of the whipped cream then fold in the final amount until everything is completely smooth and well combined.
    • Add the filling to a complete room temperature crust and freeze for at least 5 hours.
    • Remove pie from the freezer an hour before serving and enjoy!

    Notes

    If you want to replace the tequila in this recipe and make it family-friendly, just add more orange juice.
