Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1-1/8 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup water
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup lime juice
4 egg yolks
1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest, blanched
3/4 cup whipping cream, whipped
6 tart shells
Strawberry Puree:
12 ounces strawberries
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
sliced strawberries
whipped cream


Filling: Sprinkle gelatin over water in a small bowl. Set in a pan of simmering water. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Set aside.

Whisk milk, lime juice, yolks and peel in a medium bowl. Stir in gelatin. Cover with plastic and refrigerate overnight. Fold the whipped cream into the mixture and chill another 4-5 hours.

Strawberry Puree: Puree ingredients. Refrigerate until needed.

Presentation: Spoon puree onto plate. Set tart shell on top. Spoon lime mixture into shell. Pipe whipped cream on top. Garnish with sliced strawberries.

Note: I have been making these forever. I sometimes don't bother with the strawberry puree and no one misses them. I usually hate desserts that use gelatin as a thickener, but for some reason it doesn't bother me here. You can use little pie crust tart shells or the little graham cracker crust ones - both are really good. Read the recipe - you have to make this the day ahead, but after it chills overnight it has another 4-5 hour chill time. Also, this has raw eggs in it. If you have a problem with them, this ain't the recipe for you!
