Best Bites Key Lime Tarts

Whoa. These are tart little tarts! Scrumptious, but they make you pucker. I think I'm going to add 1/4 cup sugar and a little lime zest next time, to suit my taste, but if you are a fan of tartness these would be great as is. My family loved that this dessert is made in mini-graham cracker crusts. Anything mini goes over well around here.

Best Bites Key Lime Tarts

5 egg yolks
1, 14 oz, can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup fresh lime or key lime juice (I used key limes)
2 drops green food coloring, optional (the tarts will be yellow without this)
10 mini graham cracker tart shells
whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350. Combine eggs yolks, sweetened condensed milk, lime juice and food coloring. Whisk well to combine. Pour into tart shells and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 11-16 minutes or until filling just starts to set up. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temp, then refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with whipped cream.
