Key Lime Bars are the perfect dessert to share with friends or family to usher in the Spring season! Simple and easy to make and so amazingly delicious!

Welcome to #SpringSweetsWeek 2023 hosted by Heather from Hezzi-D's Books and Cooks! The sun is shining, the weather is getting warmer, so, we are celebrating the beginning of spring with plenty of spring sweets and a fun giveaway! This year 20 food bloggers from around the country are sharing over 75 sweet recipes that are perfect for spring. Therefore, let's get ready to enjoy amazing spring treats like cupcakes, cookies, pies, jams, and even a few beverages! Thank you to our #SpringSweetsWeek sponsors that are helping us give away some great prizes. Thank you to Melissa's Produce, Anolon, Taylor and Colledge, and Selefina Spices for your generosity and support. We have an incredible giveaway with four amazing prizes and would love it if you would take a moment to read about it and the prizes that you can win!

These bars taste just like traditional key lime pie, but in an easy-to-serve form.

You can find key lime juice at your grocery store, however, if it's not available, regular lime juice is fine to use instead. But if you are like me, you'll just get them from Melissa's Produce. They are so big for key limes and full of juice!

If key ime is not your jam, you can just sub out the key lime juice for lemon juice and then make my amazing Pioneer Woman Lemon Bars or my Ina Garten Lemon Bars.

Once you get them ready, bake them in a 9×9 baking dish. Anolon has a new heavy duty aluminum one and it has become my new favorite baking dish.

    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp. salt
    • whipped topping
