Nothing says summertime like Key Lime pie to me – my top 2 favorite pies & a must for me anytime we head somewhere warm & sunny! The flavor is so nice & light & flavorful & these mini cheesecakes in a jar are so perfect to serve at a gathering like a baby or wedding shower or a ladies get-together. I love the recipes in a jar as they are so cute & fun to serve & also make it easy for serving without dishing up a big pie. Everything stays nice & compact & contained.
