Key Lime Tartlets

Here is another great Key Lime recipe. I will try anything made with key lime, I just love the tart custard filling in this recipe along with the crisp phyllo tart, the topped with sweet whipped cream, perfect combination!!!!


  • 2-3 packages frozen mini phyllo tarts
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh key lime juice ( Nellie and Joes Famous Key Lime Juice)
  • zest from 2 limes
  • 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 cups whipped cream ( in the container) 
  • 8-10 key limes, sliced into thin coins for garnish

Recipe Make about 35-45 tartlets


1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2.In a large bowl, whisk egg yolks until blended. Add in sweetened condensed milk, key lime juice, sugar, and lime zest. Whisk together until smooth and blended.
3. Spoon batter into mini tarts so that they are nearly overflowing. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until custard has set and phyllo is slighty golden. Remove and let cool to room temperature.. Then  top with whipped cream and key lime slices.. Serve immediately, if store in refrigerator overnight phyllo will get soggy, so best served same day..
