One of my favorite desserts is Key Lime Pie and I absolutely LOVE when we go out to eat and we get to sample desserts in shooter glasses. I always go for the Key Lime or a Chocolate surprise – Lord I love them both! Although I will enjoy Key Lime Pie throughout the year, it seems to be a Summer favorite for many. Since we are celebrating the last weekend of Summer with Labor Day approaching us, I
There is nothing better than to have a great recipe for a dessert that is NO BAKE! I’m all about quick, easy and yummy! Plus, I recently picked up some new dessert/ice cream bowls and jars from Walmart and needed something to fill them – so here we are!
Since I have had this vertigo, all I have wanted is everything that is not good for me. The tangier the better, the spicier the better and key lime has a good zest to it, so I am really loving this dessert right now. Plus, it’s easy enough for Raegan to make all by herself – win/win!!
This is super simple and super fast! The recipe calls for 4 graham crackers crushed, but I go a step easier and buy the graham crackers that are already crumbled. I add some melted butter to it to make my crust. I don’t really measure – I just feel my way through it. It does not take a lot of melted butter, but you really can’t go wrong. If you use crumbs – 4 graham crackers equal approximately 3/4 cup of crumbs.
For some reason when I put desserts in little cups, jars or shooter glasses everyone seems to want to grab them up more
Quick & Easy Key Lime Pie in a Jar
- The juice of 3-4 key limes, or more if you like it extra tart
- 1 8 oz packaged cream cheese, softened
- Whipped cream, optional for serving
- 1 Tbs butter, melted
- 4 graham crackers crushed into crumbs
- 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- In a stand mixer beat the cream cheese on high until smooth. Reduced speed to low and slowly pour in sweetened condensed milk and beat on low speed until completely incorporated.
- Roll limes on a clean cutting board to loosen juice and cut, squeezing directly into the mixing bowl. Beat on low speed until completely incorporated.
- Pulse graham crackers in food processor until fine crumbs or crush in a Ziploc bag to your liking. Pour in 1 Tbs butter melted until you have a mixture that resembles wet sand.
- Add a layer of graham cracker crumbs to the bottom of your desired glass (the amount needed depends on the size of your glass), spoon the key lime pie filling on top (repeat with another layer of graham cracker crumbs if desired) then add pie filling.
- Top with whipped cream and a lime wedge for serving if desired.
