These Key Lime Pie Jell-O Shots are made with lime Jell-O, key lime liqueur, and vodka all poured into mini graham cracker pie crust.
Since I’ve been on such a Jell-O shot making kick as of late it only made sense to make one for Summer Dessert Week.
On Tipsy Tuesday of course.
And since it is dessert week I felt that not only should they taste like dessert but look like it too.
Years ago when I worked for Tablespoon and made a bunch of their Jell-O shot recipes they wanted me to make pie flavored ones for Thanksgiving.
The first batch I made I put into graham cracker crust just like these ones.
I was told that was too weird and had to remake them.
So I did.
Only to see a few years later someone on the site make Jell-O shots with mini graham cracker crust.
These are full of key lime flavor.
Using not only key lime juice but two key lime liqueurs.
If you only want to use one of them simply just double the amount from 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup.
I really wish that they would come out with a key lime flavored gelatin but alas no so far which is why I do add the key lime juice.
You need that extra tart flavor that only key limes give.
You don’t have to use it but it won’t taste the same.
