Key lime pie is incredible, yet these charming party-sized Key lime pies are just the cutest!
Anytime you make a pie recipe into a mini recipe, you just know it’s gotta be good, am I right?
I mean, really, the only thing you’re changing is the shape of the pan you are making it in. And it gives you reason to eat “pie” with your hands! No one looks at you funny when you eat mini desserts with your hands, but they’ll wonder when the last time you ate anything if you tried to eat a whole pie with your hands!
We should always just make mini desserts, don’t you think? Like these Key Lime Pie Cups! You may never never make a key lime pie again once you try these delicious bite-sized goodies!
Plus, your waistline will thank you (you know, since you’re not eating a whole slice of pie, right)? Oh, a girl can dream!
