One of my mother in law's favorite treats is key lime pie, and since we were planning to get together, I thought I could make something similar for her. However, with her birthday being in the summer, I wasn't really wanting to heat up the entire apartment by turning on the oven. Then, I thought about incorporating the sweetly tart flavor of limes and condensed milk in these mini key lime mousse pies. She'd get the flavors she loves, and I get to keep the apartment cool. Or at least not as sweltering. Win-win!

What are some of your favorite no-bake desserts?

  3. I love key lime pie and your recipe takes it to new heights. I really can't wait to try this. I don't have 12 ramekins though. I will have to find another way to serve this so it's not going to look as gorgeous as yours but hopefully it will taste as delicious!

    1. Another option might be using little bowls. You could also make a larger one, and cut before serving. :) Just as delicious either way!
