Mini Frozen Key Lime Pies

Mini Key Limes Pies are so fun and they’re a simple yet impressive dessert. They’re sweet and tangy and one step away from being ice cream. Plus they have a decadent cheesecake flavor and everyone will love the individual portion size.

Key Lime Pie Made Cupcake Size

Where have these little cups of limey deliciousness been all my life? They are perfectly ice cold and so refreshing on a hot sunny day.
You’ll love the fact that they are no-bake because during those 100 degree summer days we just don’t want to heat the house up with a hot oven.
The other great thing about these is that they are a dessert that people of all ages will love. And these little cupcake size pies just look that much fancier than a whole pie does right?

How to Make Mini Key Lime Pies

  • Line cupcake pan with silicone liners
  • Mix graham cracker crumbs with butter and honey.
  • In a bowl whip heavy cream to soft peaks, add 1sugar and whip to stiff peaks.
  • Separately whip cream cheese with 1 Tbsp sugar until fluffy. Mix in condensed milk, lime zest and lime juice. Fold in whipped cream mixture.
  • Divide mixture among silicone liners, filling each within about 1/4-inch of the top.
  • Sprinkle graham cracker mixture over filled cups so you have an even layer over each.
  • Cover loosely with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, about 3 – 4 hours.
  • Remove from liners then top with sweetened whipped cream mixture and garnish.

Tip for These Pies

One thing I highly recommend here is silicone cupcake/muffin liners. Just the standard size.
I bought some to make these because I’ve made brownie ice cream cupcakes before and they just stuck and were a total disaster so this time around I didn’t want to deal with any sticking. I’m guessing after a few minutes of them sitting out they’ll soften up enough you can remove them from paper liners but I just didn’t want to risk it.
You can buy the silicone cupcake liners at most craft stores or online (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Amazon) and they cost about $5 – $10 and I think they are worth it for frozen cupcakes.
