Creamy Strawberry Pie with Pretzel Crust
Do you remember how I made that pie a few weeks ago that tasted SO good but turned out SO ugly? If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you might have seen my photos. The story goes- I was craving a traditional strawberry pretzel salad. I wanted to shake it up a bit so I made it in the form of a pie! I took that traditional recipe, the one that we ALL use, and pie-d it. Easy, right?
I am not sure what I did to it but it turned out like a beautiful disaster. The crust recipe, which is a cinch by the way, I use anytime I want something a bit different. Just be prepared for the texture and saltiness. I mean- it’s made with pretzels!
I shared this story (and recipe) with Sean Copeland on B105.7 that week too. I adore Sean. We both like to eat and talk about food. Anyhow, the takeaway here is that the pie is good, you need to make it and I am a pathetic baker.
But I am fine with that ????
Another item to make note of is that I made the first step of this pie using my fave new kitchen friend: The Magic Bullet. Super fast and easier that getting out various kitchen gadgets.
