"Key Lime Mini Tarts"

"Key Lime Mini Tarts"

This is the receipe from the favorite dessert from my Wine Tasting Party.  Just scrumptious.  My guests had many compliments for these. 

1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1/2 cup Key Lime juice (squeeze approx. 2 large limes)
3 drops of food color, if desired
1 container (8oz.) frozen whipped topping (such as cool whip) thawed
4 pkgs. (2.1oz each) frozen mini fillo dough shells
Fresh raspberries, if desired

In a large bowl, beat condensed milk, lime juice and food color with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and thickened.  Fold in whipped topping.

Spoon heaping teaspoonful lime mixture into each fillo shell.  Cover, refrigerated tarts until set, at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours.  Garnish with raspberries.

Each mini tart: Calories 45

Key Lime Mini Tarts are shown on the bottom tray of the white two tiered tray and on the top tray of the glass two tiered tray.

You can find the fillo min tart shells in the freezer section of most large grocery stores that carry fillo pastry.  They are pre baked and you just need to thaw them before filling.  I filled mine in the afternoon, before the party which was held at 5:00 p.m.

They were the easiest dessert I have ever put together and they tasted just scrumptious!

Until next time.
