Key Lime Mini Pies


The holiday season is coming – that means it’s time to make pie!
Or: many pies.
Or: MINI pies.

YES.  I love pie!
I asked Owen to help me with the recipe because he loves pie too.
Really, he just loves to bake.  Isn’t it fun when you start seeing real interests in your children?  Just last Sunday, out-of-the-blue he asked if we could make Peach Cobbler.  Um, YES.
He’s also helped me make Pumpkin Pie.  And now we’ll add this to his resume as well.


Daisy Sour Cream asked me to share a holiday recipe with you.  And it was a no-brainer:

Lime + Sour cream + and Mini Pie Tins?
Who doesn’t love mini things??


Okay let’s get started…


(makes 12 mini pies or one standard pie)

1 cup sugar
3 Tbl cornstarch
1/4 cup melted butter (and somewhat cooled)
1 Tbl zested lime rind
1 cup lowfat milk
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten

1 cup (8 oz) of Daisy Sour Cream



• Combine sugar and cornstarch in a stovetop pan.
• Mix in the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT the sour cream.
• Cook over low to medium heat, stirring constantly until thick.
• Allow the mixture to cool.

Then comes the fun part.
Add 1 cup of the Daisy Sour Cream.
And, as any 8-year-old boy would do, inspect the contraption to see how this amazing invention works.


For the recipe you need 1 cup of sour cream.


Mix it all together.
Then fill those mini pie tins on up!


Top them with a bit of whipped cream and a sprinkle of lime rind.
And smile at how amazing your house smells.
Chill them till you’re ready to eat.


These can be made one day ahead, but I wouldn’t do more than that or the crust will get soft.  And if you’re asked to bring them to a baby shower: double or triple the recipe and pull out the big trays.

    I started buying the squeezable sour cream this summer. My kids think it is so funny. Mom the sour cream farted!
    I just love spending time with my own little family.

    Yummy. Thank you this will be on the table next Thursday. I am thankful for you. A light desert to go with all that heavy turkey. Now lets go do sit ups.

    We go to my Grandpas as a huge family and have ham, kluski noodles!, cut up turkey, stuffing, rolls, and pie. Love hearing all our kids run around and play dress up and create stage plays in the basement!
