We tried something fun at Camp this past week.  I made the desserts for Friday night and they were a HUGE hit.  I used this recipe and promised the girls that I would share it with them.  The beauty of it is that they are super-simple and scrumptious.


{makes around 10 jars}
* small canning jars with lids

*2 sleeves of graham crackers
{crushed fine via a mini food or put in plastic bag and use a roller to crush them}
*1 can of sweetened condensed milk
*3 egg yolks
*1/3 cup of key lime juice { if you can’t find key lime juice…regular lime juice works well}
*one stick of unsalted sweet cream butter {melted}

Mix the graham cracker crumbs and the melted butter with a fork…then scoop two spoonfuls into bottom of glass jar. Press down the graham cracker crust with a spoon.
Bake the glass jars on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes till the crackers turn lightly brown.
Meanwhile mix in a separate bowl…the egg yolks…the sweetened condensed milk and lime juice. Once the graham crackers come out of the oven…pour the key lime mixture into each container… using about 1/4 cup mixture in each cup.
{this is approximate….and use as much or little as you want}
Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Cool…then stick in fridge for 1-2 hours till cold.
Top with whipped cream…..
and viola…. key lime pies in a jar.

We've started a tradition perhaps…  🙂
