    Hi Tara,

    How did you make such a lovely topping with the Cool Whip on the Margarita Pie?

    Sharon, I have one of those Pampered Chef Decorating thingys and I just put the Cool Whip in that and shot it right out using the star tip. And it is best to keep it mostly frozen. Mine was runny when I let it thaw completely.

    I am just clarifying, before I try this… the Cool Whip does go IN the mixture, with the Bacardi and sweetened condensed milk, right? THEN into a pie shell, correct? It reads as if you mix the Bacardi with the sweetened condensed milk, pour in the shell, and top with the cool whip.

    Hello, when I made this pie, I saved the Cool Whip for the topping. But you could certainly add the Cool Whip to the Bacardi/condensed milk mixture if you wanted a different texture. It would probably set more firmly by adding the cream to the mix. This pie froze well when I made it, but was pretty messy once it thawed. I served it frozen. Wish I had some right now!

    Yes, according to many other Pampered Chef sources, you ARE supposed to fold the Cool Whip in with the condensed milk – you can always have an extra tub of whip for the topping (or just buy the larger tub) – makes a perfect pie!
    Also, the other sources offer a pretzel crust rather than graham cracker, crushed up pretzels with melted butter – YUM!

    Thank you for sharing this! My friend makes a variation of this in lime and I LOVE LOVE it. The idea of pina colada is making my mouth water. Going to do this one today. I think I am going to follow your recipe of the graham cracker crust. Sounds MUCH better to me than the pretzel crust.
    Thank again!
