Baked Sunday Mornings - Sunrise Key Lime Tarts
These were pretty amazing. I love key lime pie. Love. It is one of the easiest pies to throw together and never fails to disappoint. Sunrise Key Lime Tarts are Baked Elements spin on this classic and it was fantastic.
Pretzels replace the traditional graham crackers here and it's a genius move adding some saltiness and some crunch. The recipe calls for tequila and triple sec and I think they were going for a margarita inspired tart but I opted to leave the alcohol out and use some orange juice. I'm not crazy about alcohol in my desserts. I think I'm always afraid it will overpower the other flavors. But this was so good and such a hit I'm sure I will be making it again and will have to try the boozed up version.
The filling is pretty standard key lime pie with lime juice and sweetened condensed milk as the main ingredients. I used regular limes and would have liked a little more pucker but my husband thought the lime flavor was perfect.
Quick to put together, these tarts are sure to be a hit. To find the recipe and see what the rest of the Baked Sunday Mornings group did with this recipe, please visit here.
