Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, melted, plus more for greasing pans
  • 2 cups chocolate wafer cookies, made into crumbs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh key lime juice, or regular lime juice
  • 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2 key limes, zest finely grated (or 1 regular lime)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
  • milk chocolate, cut into curls, for garnish

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 325°. Lightly brush 30 cups of mini-muffin pans with melted butter. Fill the unused cups halfway up with water.

 

In a medium bowl, combine the cookie crumbs, melted butter and sugar. Press about 1 tablespoon of the cookie mixture into each mini-muffin cup, making sure there are no cracks. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

 

In a large bowl, whisk together the condensed milk, key lime juice, egg yolks, lime zest, vanilla extract and salt. Spoon 1 even tablespoon of filling into each warm crust. Bake the pies until the filling is set, about 12 minutes.

 

Transfer the muffin pans to a cooling rack and let stand for 20 minutes at room temperature. Use a small offset spatula or butter knife to carefully unmold the pies from the pans. When the pies are completely cool, top each with a dollop of whipped cream and decorate with a milk chocolate curl. Store untopped pies, wrapped or in an airtight container, in the refrigerator.
