Mini Lime Tarts

Did you know tarts are the cupcakes of the pie world? These tarts right here are what prove to me that it is a good idea to keep sweetened condensed milk in the pantry. I love lime flavored things, especially in the spring when I am dreaming of green. I recently served these up at a St. Paddy's day luncheon. mmm mmmm they were gobbled.

They were so easy to make, especially because I used the phyllo cups as the base. I love phyllo cups and  always keep some in my freezer just for when I need an easy fancy fix

I will be making these sweet little bites of indulgence again and unfortunately I can't take any kind of credit for the recipe. It came straight from the athensfood.com site.

The easy recipe.
Ingredients


1/2 cup softened cream cheese

1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1/4 teaspoon lime zest

15  Mini Fillo Shells (1 box)

2 thin slices of lime, cut into eigths, for garnish


In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and milk. Mix until light and fluffy. Add lime juice and lime zest. Mix thoroughly. Chill for 1 hour. Spoon or pipe 2 teaspoons of filling into each Fillo Shell. Garnish with sliced lime. Serve immediately.



Makes 15 desserts
