Details: Margarita Cheesecake with salty pretzel crust. Top spread lightly with lime curd, edged with sugar crystals, and garnished with candy jell fruit slices*.

It looks good; it smells good; the filling tasted nice before baking, but I can't give you a taste tester's review on the final product until tomorrow!

MARGARITA CHEESECAKE

crust:
1c pretzel crumbs
1/3 c melted butter (am wondering if cutting in soft butter might work better than melted?)
2 tb sugar

combine and press into 9" or 10" pan; bake 350 degrees 10 minutes.

filling:
4(8 oz) pkgs cream cheese
1 1/4 cup sugar
dash vanilla
1 1/4 c sour cream
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 c tequila
1/4 c orange liquor
1/3 c key lime juice
4 eggs

Place cream cheese into bowl, use mixer and beat on medium high, scraping sides and bottom of bowl often, until completely smooth. Beat in vanilla and sugar well. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add milk and sour cream. Stir in juice and liqueur.

Bake 350 degrees for 1 hour. Cool before garnishing. Chill before serving.

*the candy fruit a was nice addition for appearance, but superfluous for taste; maybe use a real fruit slice or a simple curl of lime rind as garnish? But I have to say, the lime curd was the perfect finishing touch!
