  • “Delicious, delicious! Like neodymm, I made this into individual servings (12 cupcakes!). Absolutely a keeper! Thank you!”

  • “Love it!I used crushed pretzels for the crust as a different twist.Everyone loved it!”

  • “gets icky after a couple days in the fridge. very strong flavor. you don’t need a huge piece.”

  • “WOW ……….. the grand finale to my Mexican fiesta! Like Trudy, I could only find an 8 oz tin of condensed milk so it may have bbeen a little boozier – but nobody complained (LOL) and I’d do the same next time. Thanx RMG!”

  • “As I could only find 8 oz tin condensed milk, it perhaps was a bit boozier than intended.The next time, I think I’ll add 1/2 cup more of whipping cream.It was smooth and refreshing.Needless to say, it was a hit and is definitely a keeper.Love the fact that it can be made ahead of time.Trudy from Nova Scotia”

  • “Outstanding!!!I doubled the recipe and made two pies to bring for a work potluck.One person said it was “awesome”, and another said, “It tastes just like a margarita!”(Well, of course, hence the name!LOL)I’d be willing to bet I could get a really good raise this year if I made my boss one for Christmas!LOLI folllowed the recipe exactly and froze the pies overnight.This is DEFINITELY a keeper – easy and super-good!”

  • “I adapted this recipe by pouring the filling into individual sized graham cracker crusts and serving them at a Cinco de Mayo party. Everyone loved them and they were really very easy to make. This is also a very good dessert to make ahead since they need to be frozen. I left mine in the freezer over night and they were perfect!”
