key lime tarts

Easiest and cutest dessert ever!!

Key Lime Tarts
from Our Best Bites

10 mini graham cracker crusts
5 egg yolks
1 14-oz. cann sweetened condensed milk
Around 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (take the time to juice them yourself, makes all the difference!)
2 drops green food coloring

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine egg yolks, milk and lime juice. Distribute evenly among crusts. Place full crusts on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven for 10-11 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature, then chill in the fridge until ready to serve. Before serving, add a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and maybe a fresh raspberry.

*You can bake this as a single large pie using a standard 9" graham cracker crust. Bake for 15 minutes.
