whipped cream and you have a winner!

    cookies to form a cup
  6. allow to cool in the muffin cups for 5 to 10 minutes then remove to a cooling rack

Key Lime Pie Filling

  1. whisk the egg yolks, lime juice, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla over medium to low heat for 10-15 minutes until completely warmed
  2. remove from heat and allow to completely cool

* I made 24 cookie cups then I just baked off the rest of the dough as regular cookies following the original recipe. They always go fast!
** In a pinch I’ve used lime juice and it was fine.
