This was my first time trying my hand at Key Lime pie. I love key lime, and was thrilled when my boyfriend asked for this as his birthday treat. I have a mini cupcake pan, and he asked that I make them in this.. so they are bite sized. I did, and they turned out great! The hardest part was the crust. I use the Graham Cracker Crust I recipe from this site for all of my graham cracker crust needs. I scooped 1 rounded Tbsp of crust into each cup in the pan and pressed against the edges with a spoon. For the filling, I used 25 walnut sized key limes, halved them, and juiced them with a garlic press, as recommended by one of the other reviewers. I did find that a cheese cloth would have been useful, as there were bits of seeds I needed to strain out. I used a thick paper towel and it took forever. I used the recommended 2 cans sweetened condensed milk, and light sour cream. Filled them to the brim and baked for 9 min. They are delicious... and so cute!
