Key Lime Pie Dessert Shots and a Party!

My daughter has always had a fascination with miniature things.
 Teeny-tiny notebooks and tape dispensers.  Little tiny plants and wee little animals to place in her shadow box.

I must admit there’s a certain fascination I have, as well, with cute little bitty things.  Like cute teeny appetizers, mini-cupcakes and now the popular tapas, which are small savory dishes.

So it’s no wonder I’ve fallen in love with serving small individual desserts with big taste.

Desserts small in size but big in flavor like these Key Lime Pie Dessert Shots! I love how cute they looked in their individual little shot glasses, the perfect after dinner treat!

Key Lime Pie Shots

Layered graham cracker crust, key lime pie filing,  whip cream, a surprise layer of lemon curd and toasted coconut make every bite a treat! They are the perfect dessert for a warm spring evening!  Here’s how to make them yourself….
