What have you been chained to all week?  Your crazy-jealous future ex-girlfriend? Facebook?  Work?  Something too naughty for me to print?  We’ve all been chained to something this week, so how about break’n away from your ball and chain, and WHIP up this easy, twisted-delicious no-bake pie?  It’s sweet, salty and creamy.  Leave me a comment about what you’ve been chained to all week, I’d so love to know.

P.S.  Thank you Phil for another off-the-margin photo shoot.  You are fierce.

P.S.S.  Chains from my favorite young New York designer, Lauren.  Her style is sexy with a major edge.  She’s twisted and beautiful!

    Sadly, I have been chained to my desk all week. It’s so friggin’ hot outside right now, this would be the perfect dessert, if only I had some pretzels & lime jello!

    This tart looks so great! Yet again, amazing photos as well! Regarding what I’ve been chained to this week, it’s actually been something good! I’ve completely fallen in love with a new book series and can’t stop reading ‘em. I guess the only downside is that it cuts into my homework time. :P hehe

    Jenny, this dessert looks equally at home for a dominatrix’s dinner party or at a church bazaar – how often does one find that?!? Good for you for bringing style and simplicity in desserts to the blogosphere. Your choice of background is inspired, and it looks a bit more HOT down in SD, CA….

    Thanks,

    Dan

  18. Simply stunning…..wow!!! and that dessert looks pretty darn good too!!
    Those images are incredible!

  19. What a whimsical treat with great flavors!

  20. you are having too much fun! It’s great not to take things too seriously- unless it is desert.

  21. Mmm, salty sweet is always a winner, and I esp like the pretzel crust! Awesome photo shoot! ;)

  22. What fun. I love salty and sweet together and I know that this would be a hit at my house. I think I am going to attempt this for my Mom’s birthday later this month!!! Thanks.

  23. I’d rather be chained to a giant bag of pretzels any day! ;)
    I love how you can use the pretzels on the top, too, as almost a spoon to scoop up all that sweet, fluffy pie.

    Where do you come up with these? The recipe is so cool, and I love that you’re still keeping the ‘no bake’ theme during the summer. The pictures are great too.

    Wow – I love the sound of this recipe. Salty, sugary and easy – what’s not to like about it! Extra bonus for me – I recently found some gluten free pretzels so I can make this for my daugther with the wheat allergy. Hooray! She will love it! Thanks for the awesome inspiration Jenny!

    HO MAY GAWD! This is crazy beautiful. The chains, the flavors, the odd practicality of it all, the sunset shots. And you, of course. Such a star, Jenny! Can’t wait for your next post already.

    The recipe – twisted. The pictures – appetizing. You – chained? Certainly not in the dazzling little black number and the kick-a** boots. Love your free spirit. Keep ‘em coming.

  50. I wish I could take pictures like this with my desserts! How fun! I’ve been chained to my desk all week.. but at least I have foodbuzz and facebook to keep me company :) wish I had this tart..

  51. I’ve been thinking about using pretzles for a while but kinda scared about how it will turn out. Thanks for the post!
