If these Key Lime Pie Bars don’t just scream, “Summer!”, I don’t know what does! A perfect creamy citrus layer atop a yummy graham cracker crust! You won’t be able to resist!
Summer is all about citrus desserts for me! You know I’m pretty much always craving chocolate, but I have to say that citrus actually trumps chocolate in the summer for me. I know, it’s crazy. It’s a testament to how perfect citrus desserts are! I recently shared a recipe for some phenomenal Lemon Blondies and I think these are every bit as delicious! I can’t pick a favorite! Lemon and lime desserts are both so yummy!
I love that these are so easy to make too! You will need to bake them, but just for a few minutes! The fresh lime juice really comes through in the finished product and makes these absolutely irresistible!
We shared some with neighbors and they texted their compliments after enjoying them. One of the ways I save my waistline, since I can’t avoid treats, is to distribute the calories to neighbors. 🙂 They all express on a regular basis how lucky they feel to live next door to us, haha! I think they are doing a favor for me by taking some off my hands!
I’ve shared on here how much I enjoy running. I do it three times a week (6 miles or more per time) and I exercise at home the other days. Is it bad that I dream about desserts while I’m running? They are one of the things that make me so happy in life! There’s nothing like a good sweat session to make me crave my sweets, haha! Many times, it’s on these runs that I find inspiration for my next dessert to share here on the blog! I believe life is about balance! I enjoy desserts immensely and eat one most days, but I try to counteract that with lots of healthy food choices for the rest of my day.
Desserts make the world go ’round! I think every hot summer day could be better with the addition of a cool and dreamy Key Lime Pie Bar!
I know you’ll fall in love at bite one! Enjoy!
