Key Lime Pie Cup

All of this can be done the day before, which is why I really like this dessert. You have done all your heavy lifting and it’s all out of the way. Then all you have to do the day up the party or moments before serving dessert is assemble. You can serve this in a little glass or fancy cocktail glass. I love this idea as they are so elegant and delicious when served chilled at the end of your meal.
