Last time I was at the grocery store, I needed two limes. Of course my store couldn’t carry regular limes, all they had was a bag of key limes. So, I picked them up and used a handful of them for whatever I was making. But that didn’t use all of them, so I went hunting for a recipe. Key lime tarts seemed like the perfect option for our increasingly awesome Spring weather. For these tarts you will need:
- Graham crackers
- Sweetened, condensed milk
As usual, I halved the recipe. This time, though, it was because I accidentally bought only one can of the condensed milk instead of two. The recipe doesn’t actually say how many it makes (or I missed it), but the full batch will make 2 dozen, so I ended up with 1 dozen. This recipe was very easy to follow, which is a good thing because I will totally be making these again (and a full batch at that).
These were quick and simple to make, and delicious. There is tons of lime flavor in them, but they aren’t so tart it hurts. These were a huge hit with my husband. I also made a chocolate based dessert (which I’ll be writing up in a week or two), and this was the hands down favorite. Without needing to ask, he told me he wouldn’t mind if I made these again. Win!
These mini-pies are perfect for entertaining or just for you. They won’t take up too much of your time, and they pack a flavorful punch. Impress your friends and family by making these little treats!
