Key Lime Tart Recipe From The Smoke Rise Inn

The Smoke Rise Inn's Chef George Tavolara shares with us a perfect recipe for a gloomy hurricane day: Key Lime Tart.

I first tasted Key Lime (pie) in Key West, Florida, and couldn't believe my taste buds! Ever since, it has been a favorite desert. This recipe looks particularly yummy with the addition of almonds to the tart crust...

Key Lime Tart Crust Ingredients:

1 Cup of Slivered Almonds.
1 Tablespoon of Sugar.
2 Cups of Fresh, Fine Bread Crumbs.
2 Ounces of Melted Butter.

Pulse almonds with sugar in a food processer until they are a fine powder. When finished, add bread crumbs and melted butter and pulse again. Press into a 9 inch tart pan with removable bottom.

Key Lime Tart Filling Ingredients:

Zest of one Lime
½ Cup of Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice.
14 Ounces of Condensed Milk.
3 Egg Yolks.

Blend all ingredients until smooth and fill pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool before enjoying.

Thank you, Chef George! I can't wait to try this recipe.
