1 recipe Baked Pastry Tart Shell
4 egg yolks
1 14-ounce can (11/4 cups) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon finely shredded lime peel
1/2 cup lime juice (10 to 12 Key limes or 4 to 6 Persian limes) or bottled Key lime juice
Few drops green food coloring (optional)
Sweetened Whipped Cream

Prepare Baked Pastry Tart Shell; set aside.

For filling, in a medium bowl beat egg yolks with a wire whisk or fork. Gradually whisk or stir in sweetened condensed milk; add lime peel, lime juice, and, if desired, food coloring. Mix well (mixture will thicken slightly).

Spoon thickened filling into Baked Pastry Tart Shell. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Chill 2 to 3 hours before serving; cover for longer storage.

To serve, cut tart into wedges. Pipe Sweetened Whipped Cream onto each wedge.

Do you have the recipe for the tart shell? Also what size shell?
