  • 12 graham crackers
  • 2 1/2 TBS butter melted or room temperature
  • 1 TBS brown sugar
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk I like Eagle
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 TBS Key Lime juice I like Nellie and Joes Key Lime Juice, it's just as good as fresh which I rarely can get
  • 1 TBS Lime zest
  • Whipped cream see note
  • 2 TBS sour cream


  • Break apart graham crackers and toss them into your food processor.
  • Pulse until they become crumbs.
  • Add in butter and brown sugar and pulse until combined.
  • Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, key lime juice and half your lime zest, Mix on high for 2 minutes. Add in whipped cream and sour cream and mix until incorporated.
  • In your chosen glasses, mason jars, shooter cups or whatever you are using. Spoon in some of the graham cracker crumb mixture. Spoon or pipe in the key lime pie mixture in, top with additional crumbs, zest and a lime triangle.
  • See Notes.


I am a huge advocate of making fresh whipped cream, I mean it literally takes under 3 minutes and is deeeelish! However, for this, use Cool Whip IN the mixture since it's stable. It holds up better and will literally keep well once made in the fridge for days. If you choose to top these mini desserts with whipped cream, there's where you can use fresh. I use 2/3's of an 8 oz Cool Whip container for this recipe.
