TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min. + cooling YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (16-1/2 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup Key lime juice
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut, toasted

Directions

  • 1. Slice cookie dough into 18 pieces. With floured fingers, press onto the bottom and 1/2-in. up the sides of greased muffin cups. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the milk, lime juice, egg yolks and lime peel. Spoon into hot crusts. Bake 7-9 minutes longer or until filling is set. Cool completely in pans on wire racks. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • 3. Just before serving, in a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add the confectioners' sugar and extracts; beat until soft peaks form. Remove pies from muffin cups. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with coconut. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
