Key Lime Pie for Two

Everything’s cuter in mini form right? Coopers, dogs, hobbits – all irresistible. Skirts are the only mini that come to mind that need a little more personal censorship… And we all know what happens when you shrink desserts down to a mini size. We go gaga over them. Mini muffins, doughnuts, tarts, and more call us to them with an un-natural amount of gravity for their pint sized portions. Mini ice cream container? Oh, yeah, I’ll finish you. Tiny cookie, I’ll take two.

So when I saw a min key lime pie… well, I’m guessing you figured it out.

This Key Lime Pie in the back of Cook’s Illustrated Cooking for two was the perfect weeknight surprise for my man. However, since it uses only a bit of this, and a bit of that, it would be a great dessert for a small social gathering. You can quickly (I know, from the pages of Cook’s Illustrated) make several of these and have them waiting and ready for guests.

Or, you could be like me, make one and devour it’s tiny little self.

I'm all over this like white on rice. You and Anita Pelaez over at the key lime pie factory have got great futures ahead of you. I love it!

I've never had key lime pie but my boyfriend always raves about it - I'd make this for us, but I suspect we'd both be devastated not to have seconds!
