I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Mini Key Lime Pies

I like to make mini pies because it's easier to share with more people.  Creamy and delicious.  If you don't like whipped cream, just omit it.

(makes 20-24)

*1 1/2 cups finely crushed graham crackers
*1/3 cup granulated sugar
*6 tablespoons butter, melted
~2 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
~3/4 cup sour cream
~20-25 key limes, juiced (about 3/4 cup)
~Zest from the limes.
~1 cup heavy cream
~1 teaspoon key lime juice
~1 1/2 tablespoons powdered sugar

~Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
~Line two muffin pans with cupcake liners.
~Mix graham crackers, sugar and butter until well blended.
~Press a heaping tablespoon graham cracker crust into cupcake liners (you will have extra.  I just freeze my extra)
~Bake for 4-5 minutes.
~Remove from oven.
~Turn oven down to 325 degrees.
~In a large mixing bowl, mix sweetened condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice & lime zest, until creamy.
~Pour over graham cracker crusts.
~Bake for 5 minutes (do not brown).
~In a large bowl, whisk heavy cream, powdered sugar & lime juice together until peaks form (do not overbeat).
~Cover cheesecakes with the whip cream.
~Refrigerate until ready to eat.
