Mini Key Lime Pies

Growing up in India, we would eat condensed milk on toast every now and then, and it was such a treat. Condensed milk is sweet, rich and delicious! I bought a can of condensed milk with the intention of eating it with toast or just licking off my fingers, but saw a quick and easy recipe for key lime pie on the can and decided to try it. I also had mini graham cracker pie shells which I used as well. I was going over to a visit a friend, she has a lovely deck (a rarity in New York city) and was going to grill for me, what a treat! I took the mini key lime pies for dessert.

The mini pies were really good. They were cool, tangy, sweet, and with the graham cracker crust even better!


1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of lime juice (about 3 to 4 limes)
1 teaspoon zest of lime
graham cracker mini pie shells (I made 6)
lime slices for garnishing


Mix condensed milk and lime juice till incorporated and then fold in the zest. Pour into pie shells, garnish with lime slices and refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving. I made them last minute, so chilled in freezer for about an hour and then in fridge till we ate them.
