Key Lime Tarts

This recipe could not be easier do to the fact I bought “ready-made” tart shells for this dessert, but you know what, it tasted fabulous and did not lack flavor or integrity of a homemade crust.  I could have gone that route but with having to make a lot of little tarts I wanted to save a bit of time and I could not have been happier with how they turned out.  Silky, smooth, creamy with a hint of tartness, these key lime tarts will be a hit at any party you serve them in.  I served them at a recent party in January; I’m guessing the host of the party was dreaming of the Florida Keys where it’s warm and sunny most of the time.  So get your Bermuda shorts out and your flip flops and make this dessert; some of you may only dream of being in the Keys this time of year but at least you can look the part…ha, ha.


1 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
