Pretzel Crusted Key Lime Squares

For crust:

1 1/2 cups pretzel crumbs (about 3 cups of mini twist pretzels BEFORE you crush)

6 Tbsp melted butter

1 tsp kosher salt

3 Tbsp sugar

 

For filling:

2 large egg yolks
1-14 oz. can fat free sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup key lime juice

 

Optional white chocolate drizzle:

1 oz melted white chocolate

 

Preheat oven to 350°.

Spray an 8x8 square pan with cooking spray.

In a food processor grind pretzels until they are a fine crumb.  (You don't want dust, but you don't want chunks or it won't stay together)

In a bowl combine your pretzel crumbs, butter, salt and sugar.

Press firmly into your prepared pan (slightly up the sides) and bake for 10 minutes until golden.

Let crust cool.

Now combine your yolks, sweetened condensed milk and lime juice.  Stir until well mixed.

Pour into your crust and bake 12-15 minutes until just set.

Cool completely and drizzle with white chocolate.

Refrigerate until ready to eat, at least an hour.

Cut into squares when ready to serve.

Store in refrigerator.
