Key Lime Tarts

I found the recipe for this Delicious dessert over at one of my new favorite blogs OUR BEST BITES!  As soon as I saw them I knew I had to try them.  I love key lime. 

Doesn't this just make you want to grab a fork or spoon?

Here is what you need:

5 egg yolks
1 - 14 ounce condensed milk
limes for lime juice(took me 4 limes)
mini graham cracker pie crust (found by regular graham cracker crust)

Here is what to do ~

Preheat your oven to 350.

In a mixing bowl beat 5 egg yolks, add in can of sweetened condensed milk ( you know it has to be good with sweetened condensed milk MMM)
Then mix in your lime juice.  This was the step I didn't like juicing all of them limes Ha.  But so worth it. I spilt some of my precious juice so it took me 4 limes.  I think you could get away with 3 if your not clumsy like me. Mix it all together and pour it into your pie shells.

Put them on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

Let cool off and then refrigerate.  Serve with I just use regular cool whip.  There is a recipe for your own at Our Best Bites

Wasn't that super easy.  You can add green food coloring if you'd like.  I did Not do that.  But I love them.  Can't wait to make these to take somewhere and share.  Who doesn't want their own little mini pie?  I love taking a LOVED food to an event don't you?
