Lime Divine Tarts

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cubed

TART SHELLS:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • White chocolate curls and lime peel strips

Directions

  • In a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, whisk the eggs, egg yolk, sugar, lime juice and peel until blended. Add butter; cook, whisking constantly, until mixture is thickened and coats the back of a spoon. Transfer to a small bowl; cool. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  • In a small bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add flour; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  • Shape dough into 1-in. balls; press onto the bottom and up the sides of 36 ungreased miniature muffin cups. Prick bottoms with a fork. Bake at 375° for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • Fill shells with lime mixture. Garnish with chocolate curls and lime peel. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 dozen.
