AMERICANA – Key Lime Pie Bites

keylimepiebites

Here are the luscious Key Lime Pie Bites from AMERICANA Restaurant and Lounge in Des Moines, IA.  When we made these at home we cut them into small pie shaped slices but you could easily trim the round pan edges off and cut them into squares or small rectangles.  This is a favorite item to order in the restaurant.  They dress it up with raspberry sauce and whipped cream.  We enjoyed this for dessert recently after making Easy Chicken Fajitas. The whole pan disappeared in just two days. It is a great refreshing dessert.  The photos show a close up of the one we made at home and also of how they look served in the restaurant.  We hope you enjoy this one!
