Reviews for Mini Key Lime and Coconut Pies
"The real deal!! I made a full size pie, not changing any amounts. I used a pre-made graham cracker crust. The filling is simply the 14 oz. condensed milk, 3 egg yolks and 1/2 cup key lime juice. Blend it smooth and pour into crust. Bake 350 for 15 min and chill. Proceed with the whipped topping as directed in recipe! You'll feel a little ray of Florida sunshine in every bite!"
"The filling on this is nice, certainly not 5 star rating but not bad at all. Which is why I'm giving this a 3 rather a 2. The use of the store bought cookie dough is what absolutely kills it. It gives it a horrible horrible taste. So much so I've tossed this batch. Do yourself a favor and take an extra 30 minutes to make your own shortbread."
"i haven't tried these yet, but they look delish! does anyone know if they freeze well?"
"These are so tasty and so easy to make!"
