Don't forget to serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Hope you enjoy!


  1. OMG does this taste as good as it looks? I've never heard of pretzels used in a crust...I am intrigued!

  2. It was delicious! It was so easy to make too!!! My stepson liked it the most, he devoured it. (:

  3. I made this pie this weekend but got a little confused when mixing it up. In the ingredient list is calls for ½ cup granulated sugar & ¾ cup light brown sugar BUT in the mixing directions it says to cream butter, ¾ cup granulates sugar & ½ cup brown sugar. I use was it called for in the ingredient list. Not sure if it makes a whole lot of difference or not but it sure was good. Just wish you could buy pretzels already crushed. Beating them with a hammer wrapped in a towel got old quick. If anyone has any comments how much granulated & brown sugar is to be used please post so I can correct my copy of the recipe. Thanks!

  5. I'm so sorry Nana, just seeing your comment now! The original recipe called for 3/4 cup sugar for the filling part of the pie, but I only added 1/2 cup, I felt it was too much sugar. You could tweak it either way, I didn't feel it was missing any sweetness with 1/4 cup less. Hope that clear it up. So happy you enjoyed the recipe, I need to make this again! Mmmm! (:
