Do you have a lime tree in your garden which is in full bloom? Or do you have some limes left from your last cocktail party? Or do you just want something refreshing with limes in it? Well, then I have this perfect recipe for you. No, I am not talking about limonade, I am talking about these little Key lime pies. At least 14 of them to be exact. Don’t worry, in respect of refreshmentthese little fellas are in no way inferior to limonade.
These Key lime Pies are the little version of a much bigger Key lime pie which I already baked many years before. To be honest, I don’t even know why I tried it out. Maybe it was due to those appetizing pictures which you can find en masse on the internet.Or it was due to my best friend who finished her trip in the USA and was craving this cake. It doesn’t matter. Both, the big pie and the small ones,
were are worth the effort.
I used the original recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction (which I like because it offers not only cups but mentions the grams as well) and changed it according to my needs. I didn’t use graham crackers, for instance. I don’t think we have such things back in Germany. Instead I used sweeter spritz biscuits:
Pssst! If you hide the mini cakes in your fridge, they taste even fresher the next morning. But you definitely have to hide them otherwise they won’t last till the next morning.
With this in mind,
When life gives you limes, make key lime pies.
