KEY LIME PIE BARS

These key lime pie bars have a buttery graham cracker crust and a smooth and creamy lime filling that make for an irresistible treat!

Key limes are very small limes that are often sold in bags at the grocery store. You can also buy bottled key lime juice if you can't find fresh key limes. And if all else fails, use regular old limes from the grocery store and you'll still end up with an amazing end result.

KEY LIME PIE BARS

These bars need to chill in the refrigerator for at least four hours before serving, so plan accordingly. I often make these bars a few days before I have company over, and that way they're ready to go when my guests arrive!

These bars have all the complex flavors of key lime pie, and make for a refreshing sweet finish to any meal!
