Sweet Lime Tartlets

Posted on


These tiny squares of graham crust filled with tart lime pie and whipped cream are a refreshing and fun party treat!

Yes, I finally got the Chicago Metallic Lift & Serve Squares Pan and I love it!  This recipe can be made as a plain lime pie in a pre-made graham crust (and it is really, really good)- but its just so CUTE made in these little squares– again, kudos to the creator of this pan- I love how the bottoms pop out and I’ve got so many fun ideas for this pan!

**Note: this recipe makes 24 squares.  Since the pan only makes 12 at a time you will need to use it twice.  I wanted to halve the recipe for you, but 1/2 a can of condensed milk AND 1/2 an egg???  Just easier to use the pan twice and have 24 pieces of yumminess!

INGREDIENTS: (double for a pie in a pre-made graham crust and eliminate crust ingredients)

  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 c. lime juice
  • 1 egg
  • 9 full sheets of graham crackers (one sleeve or about 1 and 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. melted butter

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Crush graham crackers into fine crumbs and mix well with sugar and melted butter.
  • Place metal bottoms into each square opening in the pan and lightly spray with non-stick spray.
  • Scoop about 1 to 2 T of crumbs in each square well of the pan.  (You will have half left for your next batch).  Press into bottom and sides of each square using your fingers or a Mini tart shaper.
  • Mix together condensed milk, egg  and lime juice.  Spoon about 1 T of mixture into each crust (you should have half left).

  • Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes.  
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool, carefully press up on bottom- popping square dessert out of pan.  Remove metal bottom from crust. 
  • Repeat to make 24 total squares.
  • Chill several hours.  Top with whipped cream, graham crumbs, raspberries or other fruit— be creative!
  • Enjoy!!!

My thoughts:  This lime filling is simply delicious- the perfect blend of tart and sweet.  If you don’t mind the time involved, these squares are really cute– but if you just want a quick and easy dessert, buy a graham crust, double the filling recipe (2 cans of condensed milk, 2 eggs and 1 cup of lime juice).  Bake for 20 minutes instead of 15 and there you have it- yummy lime pie.  However you choose to make it, Enjoy!

  2. These look so delicate and amazing! I love a lime filling too. Must say that pan looks like a must, I remember the first time I invested in a decent spring form cake tin and just thought ‘how did I ever live without this?’.

    • There is actually a link in the post (click on the orange letters that say Chicago Metallic) to Amazon- which is where I got mine. It isn’t a Pampered Chef product- it is a Chicago Metallic pan. Good luck!! :)
