I had an especially yummy key lime tart during my stay in Florida a couple weeks ago. I've been daydreaming about it ever since. It was so creamy and luscious!
I really, really wanted to re-create that sweet treat at home.
Lucky for me, I've had a long time blog-crush on Evil Shenanigans, and remembered this fab recipe she posted. Divine! Creamy and divine! Tart, lightly sweet, creamy and divine! That's all I have to say. :)
Source: very slightly adapted from Evil Shenanigans
For the crust:
1 1/4 sleeves of graham crackers
6 tablespoons salted butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
zest of one lime
For the filling:
2 large egg yolks
1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lime juice
1. Heat the oven to 350F. Line an 8″ square pan with parchment paper that hangs over the edge of the pan by a few inches (so you can remove the bars from the pan more easily). Grease the parchment paper.
2. Place the graham crackers, sugar, and lime zest in a food processor. Pulse until the graham crackers are reduced to fine crumbs and the mixture is well combined. Turn on the food processor and slowly stream in melted butter until all crumbs are coated. Press crumb mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
3. Once the crust is cooled, combine the egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk until well mixed. Stir in the lime juice and combine. It will begin to thicken slightly. Pour the filling into the crust, making sure the filling reaches the edges. Bake for 15 minutes, or until just set.
4. Cool to room temperature, then chill for several hours or overnight. Pull the bars out of the pan using the parchment paper and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into squares with a sharp knife, wiping the knife clean with a damp cloth between cuts. Store in the refrigerator.
