admin's picture
Ingredients
  Refrigerated unbaked piecrust 15 Ounce, folded
  All purpose flour 1 Teaspoon
  Vanilla ice cream 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Frozen margarita mix concentrate 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs) (Thawed)
  Tequila 2 Tablespoon
  Lime sherbet 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
Directions

1 Let refrigerated piecrust stand at room temperature according to package directions.
2 Trim 1 of the piecrusts to a 9-inch circle. Sprinkle 1 side with the flour. Center the circle, flour side down, in the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate. Using a fluted round cutter, cut remaining piecrust into twenty 2-inch rounds. Brush edge of crust in pie plate with water. Arrange and overlap the 2-inch rounds around edge of piecrust to form a rim; press rounds to the edge of piecrust circle to seal. Using a fork, prick the bottom and side of the piecrust.
3 Cover piecrust edge with foil. Bake in a 450° oven for 7 minutes. Remove foil; bake for 5 to 6 minutes more or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
4 In a medium mixing bowl stir vanilla ice cream just enough to soften. Stir in margarita mix concentrate. Return to freezer; freeze until nearly firm.
5 If desired, stir tequila into lime sherbet. Return to freezer; freeze until nearly firm.
6 To assemble pie, randomly drop spoonfuls of lime sherbet into ice cream mixture, folding with a spatula just to marble slightly. Do not overmix. If mixture seems soft, return to freezer and freeze until nearly firm. Gently transfer ice cream mixture to the baked piecrust, spreading evenly. Cover; freeze 4 hours or until firm.
7 Before serving, let pie stand at room temperature about 20 minutes to soften slightly. To serve, cut into wedges. If desired, garnish with whipped cream, lime peel slivers, and edible flowers.
