Key Lime Tarts

As promised, here is the recipe we made tonight for our BBQ's dessert. I planned to make a strawberry dessert, but realized too late that it needed to refrigerate for 8 hours . . . so hopefully I'll try that another time soon! Meanwhile, we made these cute little Key Lime Tarts, and they were a huge hit!

Taken from Our Best Bites cookbook

5 egg yolks
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
about 1/2 c. fresh lime juice (I used key limes, but you can use regular limes, too.)
10 mini graham cracker crusts (available near the regular graham cracker crusts in the baking aisle)
2 drops of green food coloring, optional

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, and lime juice. Distribute evenly among the pie crusts. Place the tart pans on a large baking sheet and bake for 10 - 11 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool; chill in refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve each tart with a dollop of whipped cream on top.

These are SO CUTE - the kids just went nuts over having their own little mini pies - and really yummy!
