Summer is over but that doesn't mean I can't hold on to the taste of it with an impressively delicious Key Lime Pie with a Sugar Cookie Crust recipe. This recipe packs an amazing amount of tartness with the lime while satisfying your taste buds with a super sweet cookie crust... all while being fairly healthy since there is only ONE added cup of sugar in the recipe total.

The creamy key lime pie filling matched with the Sugar cookie leave you craving more. If you are looking for something creamy and tart, a dish bound to WOW your guests, and lastly an easy recipe to make - I've got you covered. These Mini Key Lime Pies with Sugar Cookie Crust are sure to be a huge hit! 

If you don't like Key Lime, choose a different filler... I'm thinking about making a batch of these with raspberries or pumpkin instead, because why not? I suppose I should mention this recipe uses cashews so if you have a nut allergy, beware! 

Now let's get to the point and get baking and blending:
Mini Key Lime Pies with Sugar Cookie Crust

Sugar Cookie Crust Ingredients:

3/4 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups sifted flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Key Lime Pie Filling Ingredients:

1 cup raw cashews, soaked for 4-6 hours (or overnight), then drained
3/4 cup coconut milk, well shaken
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
3-4 large limes or 6-7 key limes (1 Tbsp zest, 1/2 cup juice)
1/3 - 1/2 cup agave nectar (depending on preferred sweetness)

Begin by creaming together butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla.

Then stir in sifted flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Mix until dough is thick and looks like this:

Flatten a 1 inch ball of dough into silicone baking cups.

Bake at 375 for 10 minutes or until they begin just barely cracking on the top.

Press cookie/cupcakes down with a spoon, compressing them, and place in refrigerator to cool.

Combine & Blend Key Lime Pie filling ingredients in blender.

Pour Key Lime Pie filling into the silicone baking cups once the cookies have cooled and place in the freezer for 2-4 hours. Garnish with a tiny bit of lime.
