{What's Cooking?} Key Lime Cream Cuplets

This week's What's Cooking recipe is a newbie to me that I am excited to share with you. I am designing a bridal shower for this upcoming June and the bride-to-be loves Key Lime Pie. Any guesses what one of the main attractions on the dessert table will be? While searching for Key Lime Pie recipes, I came across this Key Lime Cream Cuplets recipe from Ceramic Canvas. Not only are they the perfect bite-sized portions for a bridal shower dessert table, but they are just so darn pretty and would be the perfect dessert for a hot summer day. Just trust me!

Ceramic Canvas provides the recipe to this summertime citrus dream along with some wonderful photos as well.


For graham crackers cuplets:
- ¾ cup graham cracker crumbs
- 3 TBL sugar
- 3 TBL unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine crumbs, sugar and butter in a small bowl. Scoop a rounded tablespoon of a graham cracker mix into the cup of a 2” muffin tin. Using fingers, press the crumbs evenly on the bottom and the sides of each cup.

Bake for 12 minutes. Take out and allow to cool completely.

For lime cream:

- 6 TBL fresh key lime juice
- 4 TBL sweetened condensed milk
- Zest from one lime
- 1 cup heavy cream

Stir together the lime juice, condensed milk and half of the lime zest in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whip the cream to soft peaks. Gently fold the whipped cream into the lime mixture.

Pipe whipped lime cream into the individual graham cuplets. Garnish with remaining lime zest.

Makes 12 cuplets

I can't wait to see how these turn out on the dessert table this June. Stay tuned...!
