Mini Key Lime Tarts

Citrus, always a welcome flavor around the holidays, is the main attraction of these irresistible bite-size tarts. Make them the day before a gathering then garnish with lime zest just before serving.

Makes 1 serving


  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tbsps sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
