Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat Oven to 350*.
  2. Combine Crushed Pretzels, Sugar, Melted Butter, and Crushed Peanuts.
  3. Using a Spring form Cheesecake pan, Mash Pretzel mixture into the bottom, making a crust and bake for 5 minute only! Set aside.
  4. Beat Softened Cream Cheese, Sweetened Condensed Milk, Egg Yolks, Lime Juices, Zest, and Vanilla until Fluffy and Smooth.
  5. Pour into the Pie Crust and bake for 15 minute or until set.
  6. Let Pie cool and then refrigerate for 2 hours.
  7. While pie is cooling, Beat Heavy Whipping Cream until soft peaks start to form. As you're mixing add the Powdered Sugar one tablespoon at a time until mixture is slightly stiff.
  8. Next add the Whipped Topping to the top of your refrigerated pie and top the whipped topping with a little more Lime Zest and or Pretzel Crumbs.
  9. To remove Pie from the spring form pan, using a butter knife, run the knife around the edge of the pie to loosen it from the sides and pop open the springform ring.
  10. Gently remove the ring and place pie on a glass Cake plate. I use one with a pedestal and a cover.
  11. After slicing the pie return it to the refrigerator.
  12. Enjoy!
