Baking the puff pastry: Place the pastry rounds on a baking sheet, 2 inches apart from each other. Whisk an egg and brush over the pastry circles. Then sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs or sugar.

Key Lime Pie Filling: Beat the cream cheese for a couple of minutes until creamy. Add the sweetened condensed milk, key lime juice, and zest, and mix to combine.

Marshmallow Frosting: Place the egg white, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt in a bowl, whisk over a double boiler until the temperature reads 140ºF. Whip with a mixer for about 5 minutes until stiff peaks form.

Assembling:  You will need to use a pestle to push through the dent you created before baking, spoon the filling in the center of the pastry. Then top with the Marshmallow Frosting.

Assembling:  You can toast the frosting to make this dessert even more delicious, and to give it a special touch.
