Key Lime Tarts

It is hot...


Reading the 10 day forecast makes me sweat.  Some people fight the heat by drinking water, but I choose summer sweets.  These are great if you want something mini to help cool you off!  My wonderful Aunt shared this Paula Deen Recipe with me.


The Goods:

  • 24 Key Lime Cooler Cookies (or vanilla wafers)
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 TBSP Key Lime Juice (or lime juice)
  • 1 tsp Lime Zest
  • Whipped Cream (I made my own)

Pre-heat oven to 350. Line a mini muffin tin with paper cups, and spray with cooking spray.  Aren't these so cute? :)


I bought these on Etsy when I was looking for cups for a friend's Bridal Shower.  They are made by The Bakers Confections.  You should check out their Etsy shop, it is SO cute!  

Line the paper cups with the vanilla wafers {I could not find the key lime cooler cookies}.  Mine did not fit perfectly, so I did a little bit of smashing...


Now onto making the filling.  Beat together cream cheese, egg, sugar, key lime juice, and zest until well combined.  Fill cups with filling.  As you can see I filled them to the brim. 


Bake for 10-15 minutes.  I waited until they were sightly brown.  Allow to completely cool before adding the whipped cream.  You can buy whipped cream, or use this Recipe I found.    Be sure to refrigerate these before eating them {trust me, they are better that way}!


This recipe makes about 2 dozen tarts.  Hope you are staying cool!

  1. Omg! I saw her make these the other day on tv and they looked really good, cute and easy! I'm so glad you tried them... and I hate to rub it in that I'm wearing pants and a jacket as I type this ;) what's funny is that I wish it was warmer!!

  2. yum, looks wonderful. Tiny and not so guilt developing. I wish I liked to bake more, but as Sean knows, I don't. Guess I have gotten used to not having sweets around, since I have always been watching my weight. :-(
