Key Lime Tarts

Key Lime Tarts

Diana Rattray
Yummy little key lime tarts are just perfect for a special dessert, and you can freeze some for the future. Serve these key lime tarts with a whipped cream topping and garnish with fresh berries or lime slices.


  • 8 (approx. 3 1/2-inch size) frozen tart shells (mini pie shells)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons key lime juice, fresh or bottled
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated lemon or lime zest
  • dash salt
  • whipped cream or whipped topping
  • lime slices, strawberries, or other sliced fruits, for garnish


Place tart shells on a baking sheet and bake at 325° for about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, Whisk together the eggs, sugar, flour, key lime juice, zest, and salt. Spoon or ladle filling into the partially baked shells. Bake until custard is set, about 25 to 30 minutes.

Cool completely or serve slightly warm with ice cream or whipped cream. A few ripe blackberries or strawberries make a pretty garnish for this dessert.

Makes 8 servings. These tarts may be frozen.

this is also a great recipe, to make ahead or to give as a gift in a christmas food basket of homemade goodies.
