Key Lime Pie Shots


What’s better than key lime pie? Key lime you don’t have to bake! These amazing no bake shots have just five amazingly simple ingredients.  And now that I live in the South where these green babes grow I am all about them! They are so limey and tart and delicious!  I’m thinking key lime bars are next i.  ya know-  lemon bars?

1 8oz packaged cream cheese, softened
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
The juice of a truck load of key limes! ok 10 or so ( more if you like it extra tart – I use 14)
4 whole graham crackers, crushed into crumbs or 1 cup graham crumbs
1 Tbs butter, melted
Whipped cream, optional for serving
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 and drizzle in 1 Tbs butter melted pulsing 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 and repeat with another layer of graham cracker crumbs and pie filling.
Top with whipped cream and a lime wedge for serving if desired.
