After long winters in Iowa, I look forward to Easter.  Even though Easter is pretty early this year, it usually marks the start of spring for me.   It is the time of year I start to get excited about the warmer weather ahead.  And when I think of warmer weather, I start to think of spring break in Florida.  And when I think of Florida, my mind always heads over to amazing key-lime pie.

Key-lime pie in Florida is always delightful.  It doesn’t matter if you order it in a restaurant or you just pick some up at a grocery store.  It is always good, and when I get back to Iowa, I still crave key-lime pie but I have to make my own.

And since key-lime pie reminds me of warmer weather, it is appropriate to serve for Easter.  Plus it is the appropriate color to add to serve with pastel Easter candy like these M&M’S®  Pastel Milk Chocolate Candies.

Pastel M&M’S® are great for baking, decorating and filling your Easter Eggs!  Since I like to keep my recipes to be easy prep, I simply made these key-lime pie cups in my pressure cooker and skipped the crust altogether.  This recipe is incredibly easy and looks festive for any spring or easter spread.  I found the M&M’S® 62oz. Pastel Milk Chocolate Candy Bag
 at Sam’s club.

I decided I would try these key-lime-pie cups in my pressure cooker.  I have been loving my pressure cooker lately, and I have been seeing a lot of people online who are making cheesecakes in their pressure cookers.  I thought I would try a key lime pie.   I placed these mason jars right in the pressure cooker.  It was super easy!

My kids’ of course Loved these key-lime pie cups but adding M&M’S® made this so much more exciting and special for them!
