Key Lime Tart recipe

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

On Your Mark. Get Set. Bake.

I guess I really have been watching too much The Great British Bake Off. After watching Ryan churn out his Key Lime Pie, I was tempted to do something limely too so thus, here you have it. A first collaboration with Sis. Key Lime Tart.

The idea is pretty simple. It’s a simple shortcrust pastry recipe from Eugenie’s Kitchen and the filling from Sally’s Baking Addiction’s Key Lime Pie Squares. Just combine the two.

INGREDIENTS : 

(for filling)
4 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
4 large egg yolks
14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup key lime juice
2 teaspoons lime zest

RECIPE : 

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

BEAT cream cheese on high speed until smooth.
BEAT in the egg yolks 
BEAT
in the sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, and lime zest until combined.
POUR
into the warm crust.

SERVE and consume.

The result turned out to be better than I thought. I have tried eating it cold and warm and I have found that it tasted better warmer. On first sight, it is reminiscent of the traditional portugese egg tart. However it packs a punch with it’s key lime pie filling which surprisingly goes well with the crust.

Perhaps a sweet crust could have been used to help balance out the sourness of the key lime filling. Do you prefer the traditional gingersnaps base and having it served cold? Well. Time to get this sorted.
