One of my favorite desserts of all time is Key lime pie. I love the tangy citrus flavor the Key limes add and the creamy texture that whipped cream lends, balancing out the tartness. While traditionally this pie uses a graham cracker crust, I opted to swap that out for sugar cookie dough I picked up at my grocery store.
Another ingredient commonly used in Key lime pie? Egg yolks, which are sometimes beaten into the filling. Since I didn’t want to be bothered with the worry of raw eggs or taking the extra time to cook the filling, I simply skipped the eggs and made a whipped Key lime filling using lime juice and heavy whipping cream.
Not only is this dessert super simple to prepare, it's wonderful to serve when entertaining guests or if you want to have just a tiny bite of dessert to satisfy those pesky sweet tooth cravings.
This popular tangy citrus pie is transformed into a full-flavored lime treat in bite-size form.
