Easy and delicious, these adorable key lime pie shooters are the perfect size to satisfy that sweet tooth. They are tangy and sweet with the perfect amount of graham cracker crumbs. Place them on a tray on your dessert table to impress your guests. To pipe the filling into the glasses, place the key lime filling into a quart-size bag and snip the corner. Then pipe into the glasses. The Test Kitchen
