Key Lime Pie Variation
Recently a friend of mine was looking for a great dessert to take to a Memorial Day BBQ on a very warm summer day. She was looking for something that would transport and store easily but be easy to serve. I suggested the Key Lime Pie because well it is awesome and super refreshing, but instead of making it in a pie plate with a graham cracker crust, I offered the option of using a Nilla Wafer in the bottom of a muffin cup liner for individual serving Key Lime Pie Cups. She took that idea and ran with it making the filling the night before and preparing the cups with the Nilla Wafers and filling then chilling over night. The day of she topped them with whipped cream and a slice of lime so everyone knew what they were. She said they were a huge hit and everyone kept complimenting on how good they were to the point where it was a little uncomfortable...I think that is a HUGE compliment to the chef!
