Key Lime Minis – Raw Cashew Mini Cheesecakes

As I mention in my previous post, the CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT CAKE that I made for my daughter’s birthday, I will be making something for my son in law’s BD, in August, I just don’t know what yet. Also, his sister made the BD cake as I predicted, because she always does, lol! Nevertheless, I didn’t know that he loves key lime pie, therefore my daughter asked me to make these Key Lime Minis for him.

I never made any key lime dessert before, but I will be for sure again! Their flavor is truly different from regular limes and if you can’t find them in your supermarket, you may use Key Lime Extract. Although I am not sure how it works because I have not try that yet. Fortunately, one of our local supermarkets offers the real Florida Key Limes, so I didn’t need to.

Well, the main thing is that everybody including my son in law loved these delicious Key Lime Minis. I will be making key lime pie in the future for sure.

By the way, do you like key lime pie and have you made it before? There is so many options that I have, but I didn’t decided yet, whether I will make it raw or baked. Well, will see! If you have any ideas, I will be happy if you would share it with me.

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!
