Easy 5-Ingredient Key Lime Pie Bars

Easy 5-Ingredient Key Lime Pie Bars
Pastry chefs in fancy restaurants across the country love crumbling baked cookies into their pie crusts. While these yummy squares are more family friendly than fancy, our version of the crumbled-cookie crust is just as delish!

Ingredients:

1        roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
1        container (16 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
2        cans (14 oz each) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
3/4     cup lime juice, and 2 tablespoons grated lime peel from 5 to 6 large limes
2        containers (6 oz each) Yoplait® Original Key lime pie yogurt
Directions:
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Cut dough into 1/2-inch slices; place slices on ungreased large cookie sheet. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden. Cool completely, then break cookies into gallon-size resealable food-storage plastic bag. Seal bag, and finely crush cookies with rolling pin.
  • 2 Pour finely crushed cookies into large bowl; stir in 1 cup of the thawed whipped topping. Press mixture into ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish.
  • 3 In large bowl, mix condensed milk and lime juice; beat with electric mixer on medium speed until thick and smooth.
  • 4 Fold remaining whipped topping and yogurt into milk mixture. Spoon onto cookie crust. Top with grated lime peel. Cover and refrigerate about 8 hours or until completely set. Cut into 5 rows by 4 rows. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.

Expert Tips:

If using a stand mixer, "pulse" the mixer in the beginning to avoid splashing lime juice out of the bowl.
When grating lime peel, wash and dry the fruit well first. As you grate the peel, use a light hand to remove just the flavorful colored part of the peel, not the bitter white "pith."
