mini key lime tart recipe with strawberries- dessert idea for a spring party

You know when you find a person on Instagram that you just obsess over? Basically, you want to be real life bffs with them and you borderline stalk all their posts? That’s how I’ve been with Sabrina. I found her Instagram feed a few months ago and would just drool over her yummy food photos and wish that I could go to cute coffee shops with her in her hometown of Toronto. Turns out this girl is an incredibly talented baker and she has a blog to go along with her picture-perfect Instagram feed. It doesn’t hurt that’s she’s also sweet as can be!

I asked Sabrina if she would be interested in sharing a recipe with you all, and I’m so honored she said yes! She made these Mini Key Lime Tarts with Macerated Strawberries and they look so delicious! Wouldn’t they be perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch? I absolutely love the tart flavor of key lime combined with sweet strawberries and cream. Plus, the flaky crust just seals the deal!

Mini Key Lime Tarts with Macerated Strawberries

Yield six mini tarts or one 8 inch pie

Pie Crust

1 stick unsalted butter, melted

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/3 cup shredded coconut, sweetened

Pinch of salt

Key Lime Curd

2 cans condensed milk

4 large egg yolks

1 cup (1/2 cup fresh lime juice + 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice)

Preheat oven to 375F.

In a medium bowl, combine the graham crumbs, shredded coconut, and salt. Mix in the melted butter with a fork. Spoon the mixture into each tart pan and firmly push the graham mixture into the bottom and up the sides. Repeat for all pans. (Do the same if youโ€™re making a large pie)

Place the tarts on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, mix together the egg yolks, condensed milk and both juices. Whisk until fully combined.

Remove the tarts from the pan, if any of the crust bubbles up, flatten with the back of a spoon. Portion out the key lime mixture into each tart pan, fill to about half a centimetre from the edge of the crust.

Place the tarts back into the oven for 10-12 minutes until the tops set. You donโ€™t want any browning on the curd.

Let the tarts cool completely on a cooling rack and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Macerated Strawberries

2 cups strawberries, quartered

1/4 cup granulated sugar

Zest and juice of 1 lime

Quarter the strawberries, place it in a bowl and sprinkle the sugar over the top. Add the lime zest and juice. Toss and set aside for 10 minutes. The lime and sugar will get syrupy and break down the strawberries a bit.

Serve the key lime tarts with whipped cream, the macerated strawberries and garnish with fresh lime zest.
