Summer is just around the corner. Time for a refreshing dessert. Nothing is more refreshing than a Key Lime dessert. Here is a fancy one, served in wine glasses.

1 14-ounce can Sweetened Condensed Milk

4 egg Yolks

4 ounces Key Lime juice

8 ounces Pound Cake

1/2 cup Whipping Cream

1 teaspoon Powdered Sugar

6 whole Strawberries

1 Kiwi, peeled, sliced in 6 sliced

In a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer, combine milk and egg yolks and blend at low speed. Slowly add lime juice and continue mixing until well blended. Slice pound cake into 1-inch slices and cut to fit inside of a white wine glass. Pour Key Lime filling over pound cake and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Whip whipping cream with powdered sugar and top each wine glass. Garnish with a fresh strawberry and a slice of kiwi.
