Key Lime Pie In A Jar | Craft Dictator

 

One of my absolute favorite desserts is Key Lime Pie.  It always reminds me of being at the beach with my family!  I have been obsessing over desserts in a jar lately and decided that Key Lime Pie in a Jar was a perfect idea!  I used the Mrs. Biddle’s Key Lime Pie Recipe that I always make my key lime pies with and went from there.  I decided that this would be a fun treat for my friends for St. Patricks Day so I made it Green and Gold with a fun printable which you can find below!

I started off with making my graham cracker crust.  I put about 1/4 cup of graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of my jar and baked them for about 5 minutes on 350 degrees F just to get them a little brown.

I then mixed together my key lime filling.  I put the can of sweetened condensed milk in a bowl and then added the 4 egg yolks and then mixed in the 4 oz of key lime juice.

Once this was mixed well I added some green die to make my key lime pies festive!

I then poured my filling over my graham cracker crumbs and baked it for about 20 minutes.  You should bake yours between 10-15 minutes because I found that baking it at 20 minutes was a little too long, but it still tasted good.

Once it was baked I added my yellow whip cream and some green sprinkles to top it off!
