Key Lime Pie Bars

Ingredients

Crust

  • 5 tbsp Hiland Dairy Butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs

Filling

  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 2 tsp Key Lime or regular lime zest
  • 1/2 cup Key Lime Juice
  • 1 can (14oz) Sweetened condensed milk

Whipped Topping

  • 1 cup Hiland Dairy Heavy Cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp  teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In an 8×8 baking dish, prep with nonstick spray or parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix the melted Hiland Dairy Butter with the graham cracker crumbs. Mix together until combined. Mixture will look like wet sand.
  • Pour the crumb mixture into the baking dish and press down into an even layer. Bake the crust in the oven for 6-7 minutes.
  • Filling: In a stand mixer or with a handheld mixer, mix the egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, Key Lime juice and lime zest. Mix on medium speed for 2-3 minutes until combined.
  • Pour the filling over the baked crust and spread out evenly. Place in the fridge overnight to set.
  • Whipped Topping: In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment or a handheld mixer, add the Hiland Dairy Heavy Cream, sugar and vanilla and mix on medium speed for about 2 minutes or until you have stiff peaks.
  • Once ready to serve, cut bars and place a large dollop of the whipped topping on each bar. Garnish with a slice of Key Lime and some zest if desired.
  • Store bars in the fridge when not serving. Enjoy
