Key Lime 

Cupcakes

Deciding between oranges, grapefruits, and lemons is hard enough. But then, there are limes. Groves and groves of limes. Not just any lime. THE lime.

Key Limes are small, about 1/3 the size of a regular lime, and more acidic in flavor.  They’re picked when they’re green, but turn yellow when ripe.

Tools you need for key lime cupcakes:

– Electric mixer – Cake corer  – Muffin tins – Cup cake liners – Carrot peeler  – Parchment paper – Foil – Cup cake container

Ingredients

Cake flour All purpose flour Baking powder Salt Butter Granulated sugar Eggs Fresh key lime juice Key lime zest Milk Sour cream Cream cheese Powdered sugar Butter Key lime juice Vanilla Key lime zest Sweetened condensed milk Egg yolks Sugar Cup lime juice Chocolate

Instructions:

Boil water, remove from heat  and add tea bags.

Place the egg yolks in a bowl, and whisk them until they're well blended.  Add the sweetened condensed milk, 3 egg yolks, sugar, and key lime juice to a heavy bottom saucepan.

Step 2

Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens, about 15 minutes.  The filling will continue to thicken as it cools. Place in the refrigerator until time to fill the cupcakes.

    WHITE CHOCOLATE CURLS - 1 bar of White chocolate, and a carrot peeler is what you'll need to make the curls that go on top of the cupcakes.

Step 4

If you prefer bigger curls, just continue down the bar with the peeler.  You can make these while the cupcakes are baking and cooling.
