Key Lime Pie In A Jar

June 10, 2015

Key Lime Pie is one of my absolute favourite desserts to have year round, but I especially enjoy it in the summer when there could be nothing better than the refreshing taste of a tart lime. I have never actually baked key lime pie before so I figured that this easy no-bake recipe would be the perfect way to introduce myself. I love that I can whip this up in minutes if I am having company over and the single serve portions in the mason jars really elevate this desserts simplicity. And let me tell you, it was a good thing that I had friends to give some of these to because I honestly would have eaten every single one.
