Ingredients

  • 1
    pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
  • 6
    tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 4
    teaspoons grated Key lime or regular lime peel
  • 1
    whole egg
  • 4
    egg yolks
  • 2
    cans (14 oz each) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
  • 3/4
    cup bottled or fresh Key lime or regular lime juice
  • 1
    drop green food color, if desired
  • 1
    container (1 lb) Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla or cream cheese frosting
  • 1
    graham cracker crumb crust (6 oz), broken into chunks, or 10 graham cracker rectangles, broken into chunks

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, 3 teaspoons of the lime peel and the whole egg until soft dough forms. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls into muffin cups; use fingers to flatten. Bake 12 minutes. Cool in pans on cooling racks.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat egg yolks, condensed milk, lime juice and food color with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until well blended. Pour evenly into partially baked crusts, filling each about three-fourths full.
  • 3
    Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are set and centers are still soft. Cool 20 minutes. Cover; refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours but no longer than 2 days. Stir remaining 1 teaspoon lime peel into frosting. Frost cupcakes. Garnish with graham cracker chunks. Store covered in refrigerator.
