Step 1

1. Heat oven to 325°F. Line 24 mini muffin cups with paper liners. Combine all of the crust ingredients, except butter, in medium bowl. Stir in butter until crumbs are moistened. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons crumb mixture into each muffin cup; press firmly to form crust.

2. Bake 5 minutes; cool completely on wire rack.

3. Whisk egg yolks, condensed milk and lime juice in medium bowl until combined. Whisk in all remaining filling ingredients. Spoon about 1 tablespoon filling into each muffin cup.

4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until set. Cool completely on wire rack. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

5. Beat cream in medium bowl at medium-high speed until soft peaks form. Add all remaining topping ingredients; beat until stiff peaks form. Fill pastry bag fitted with star tip or resealable plastic bag with corner cut off with topping. Pipe decoratively on top of each pie; garnish with coconut. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
