Kim's Story

My first experience to have this pie was in 1985 and I lived in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and I was visiting my Grandma Debelak. It was an extremely hot day and she took this pie out of the freezer and cut a slice for both of us. I immediately fell in love!

OH MY! Can I say it was the most refreshing slice of pie that I had ever had. I can still remember the moment in time with Grandma Debelak sitting in her kitchen and eating this pie on a hot hot summer day.
It is a very easy recipe to make and I hope you enjoy this refreshing pie.

Just made up the recipe on the graham cracker crust pie box and then spooned in the mixture into the paper cups that I had in my tart pan. Baked them about 5 - 7 minutes; let them cool and then spooned in the key lime pie mixture and put them in the freezer.

Yes, Kim, I was referring to this recipe when I asked if the bottled lime juice would work okay. Thanks for your reply.

Since you used a premade 9" graham cracker crust for your pie; what did you use for a "crust" in the mini tarts and/or the cupcake-sized tarts? Did you just mix some graham crackers crumbs with some butter?
