Individual Frozen Key Lime Pie
How great is this? A classic beautiful dessert like Key Lime Pie, made into individual servings! I love Key Lime Pie and these beauties totally score points for the cute factor. My kids thought so anyway. I added a few drops of food coloring to help bring out the lime color and am thinking this would be great for St. Patrick's Day! Thanks to my little sister for passing this along. We love it!
½ stick butter, unsalted, melted
1 sleeve honey graham crackers, turned into crumbs
¾ Cup key lime juice, fresh squeezed (about a pound of key limes)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
8 oz whipped topping, plus more for garnish
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3-4 drops green coloring, optional
Crush graham crackers and mix with the butter, set aside. Cream the cream cheese until smooth using a hand mixer, add in the sweetened condensed milk and mix until smooth. Add the key lime juice and food coloring, mix until smooth. Let the whipped topping defrost and add to the cream cheese mixture, folding it in until combined. You can use a jumbo muffin tin or silicone cups. Fill with the cream cheese mixture about ¾ of the way up. Top with the graham cracker crumbs. Place in freezer for about 4 hours or until set. Unmold pies carefully. Slide a butter knife around the edge of each pie to loosen it up. If you're having trouble getting them to come out, submerge the bottom half of the pan into warm water for a few seconds. Dump it out on a plate and serve graham cracker side down. Serve with whipped topping garnish and key lime slice if desired, enjoy!
