Mini Key Lime Pie and New Years Eve

Can you believe it, 2012 is already over.
New Years is coming closer and closer and it feels like the year had barely started.
Time just flew by and so much happend this year.

A lot of good and a lot of bad happend but really, the good took over, which is really a calming thought.
I really enjoyed my Month long vaccation in the US. It brought me close to someone I would have never thought. I just feel happy thinking about this time and I am glad that I could enjoy the year after it had started in so much pain.

So what is the best to end the year with!? Of course a delicious little treat on New Years Eve or to make it even better, enjoy it after a long night Partying on New Years Day.

I bring to you, Mini Key Lime Pie.

To get this nice tall shape I used a Muffin Tin I found at IKEA, it is called Dromar. It has very straight and pretty high sides, not becoming bigger on the top like the regular Muffin Tins.

But a regular old Tin will do just fine.

Put some Cupcake Liners in and fill about half an inch with the Graham Cracker Crust, bake, fill all the way to the top with the Filling and bake a little while more. The Liners will make it easy to get them out of the pan. Let them cool completely and chill them best overnight in the fridge. When they are all chilled, unwrap them to show of your stunning little pieces. Now you can see the nice little ridges on the side, plus it is much easier to eat two or three at once when you dont have to unwrap every single one ^^ much faster to sneak one in like that hihi.
